Oropharyngeal cancers related to human papillomavirus (HPV) are on the rise. Dentists may be the next group of providers articipating in the prevention of HPV. The aim of this study was to assess dentists’ health literacy regarding the connection of HPV and oropharyngeal cancer. The authors conducted 4 focus groups with dentists (N = 33) during a regional dental conference in 2016. Guided by the health literacy competencies (that is, access, understand, appraise, and apply), the authors used constant comparison methods for data analysis.

Key Words. Human papillomavirus; HPV-related oropharyngeal cancer; dentists; health literacy; HPV vaccine.
