Open Tabs
Description:

Oral squamous cell carcinoma is an aggressive epithelial malignancy that is the sixth most common neoplasm in the world today. Despite numerous advances in treatment, including surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, the long-term survival has remained poor. Further, radiotherapy can cause significant long-term morbidities. Therefore, the dental team plays a critical role in both the early detection of premalignant lesions and management of radiation sequela.

After this course, you will be able to:

  • Conduct a comprehensive visual tactile exam and develop a differential diagnosis of common oral lesions\
  • Discuss the findings of the new American Dental Association oral cancer screening guidelines
  • Define the role of dental professionals in identifying and managing radiotherapy related morbidities
