Preventing HPV Cancers in Action Part 2: Dentists As Vaccinators

 American Dental Association on-demand webinar
This presentation was recorded on April 4, 2022.

Course Overview
The COVID-19 pandemic has increased awareness of dentists as vaccinators—including the HPV vaccine. Please join Rosie Wagner DDS, Founder, Smiles By Rosie Family Dentistry and Isaac Zeckel DDS, Chief Dental Director, HealthLinc, to discuss the benefits of dentists as immunizers, steps to becoming a dentist immunizer, medicolegal considerations, and ways to increase access to care by providing a new vaccination setting, with innovative vaccination approaches that utilize on-site interdisciplinary teams.

This course is the second in the three-part series "HPV Cancers in Action" from the ADA Council on Advocacy for Access & Prevention (CAAP). More than ever, there is a need to increase awareness of HPV and of educating the public on the need for HPV immunization. The administration of the HPV vaccine is a safe and effective way to reduce the risk of HPV-related cancers, including certain head and neck cancers. HPV is now associated with more than 20,000 cases of head and neck cancer each year in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Learning objectives
• Learn the steps in becoming an immunizer, including registration with one's state database, training on storage, handling, and administration of vaccines, and necessary equipment purchases
• Learn about one FQHC’s collaborative practice to educate patients and administer the HPV vaccine while in the dental operatory
• Describe ways to increase access to care by providing a new vaccination setting

Presented by the ADA’s Council on Advocacy for Access and Prevention (CAAP).
