HPV-related oral cancers are on the rise, and while cancer therapy saves lives, it results in myriad oral and dental sequelae. How do we treat them? When is it safe and appropriate to provide dental care to the head and neck cancer patient?
Attendees of this course will
- be familiar with dental oncologic issues;
- identify when to perform dental treatment on a patient undergoing chemotherapy; and
- learn the appropriate and important questions to ask the patient’s oncologist.
Attendees will be provided with the armamentarium to treat and manage the dental patient undergoing head and neck radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
