As the rates of oral cancer continue to increase, conducting a comprehensive head and neck evaluation becomes more important than ever before. Unfortunately, although head and neck evaluations are simple and quick, dentists often neglect to perform them. As healthcare professionals who see patients twice a year, dentists are vital in diagnosing head and neck pathology. This CE webinar will review the signs, symptoms and risk factors of oral cancer, as well as review how to perform a comprehensive head and neck examination. The target audience of this webinar includes dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, residents, and students.
At the end of the CE webinar, the participant will
• Become more familiar with performing an in-depth oral cancer evaluation
• Become more familiar with how oral cancer is treated and the dentist’s role in helping to prevent oral cancer
• Become familiar with the relationship between HPV and oral cancer
