Sex, Drugs & Oral Cancer™
Due to a recent rise in HPV, oral cancer rates have continued to rise and are now affecting patients that we never thought were at risk. This webinar will provide oral cancer education and proper protocols for early discovery to save lives.
Recent trends in oral cancer have heightened the importance of a proper oral cancer screening protocol for all medical and dental professionals. Oral Cancer has risen each of the past seven years, and the deforming disease is now affecting patients with no traditional risk factors. Due to a 225% increase in HPV related oropharyngeal cancers, oral cancer is occurring in younger populations, changing the perception of who to screen.
With the need for a new oral cancer screening protocol, adjunctive screening options will be covered in detail. This course will introduce recent and emerging technologies for early discovery of oral cancer, including fluorescence technology and quantitative cytology along with the importance of proper implementation. Clinical examples of these procedures will also be provided.
