Oral Cancer: From Diagnosis to Management (WEBINAR)
January 7, 2022
Successful management of the oral cancer patient requires a multidiscipline effort, in which the dental professional plays a critical role. An estimated 29,000 new cases of oral and pharyngeal will be diagnosed this year, many as a consequence of an oral screening provided by a dentist.
Research over the past decade has produced several advances improving the profession's ability to diagnose, treat, and manage the short and long-term consequences of oral cancer. Ultimately, however, successful cancer therapy often incurs life-long impairments, which may adversely affect the patient's quality of life. As many of the impairments directly affect the oral cavity, the dentist will be frequently called upon to manage many of these impairments such as mucositis, xerostomia, increased caries, and disfigurement.
This course will provide a review of the most contemporary approaches to manage the oral cancer patient, from diagnosis to management.
The participants will learn about:
