Description

Natasha Welsh from MEGAGEN and ROE Dental Laboratory Present

“Prevention vs. Prosecution: How a correct oral cancer screening could have saved this life.”

3 hour CE

Snacks provided

$50

This fun and energetic course began with a case presentation featured at the International Symposium in Dental Hygiene in Switzerland in 2016 and will get you comfortable on how to recognize irregular spots intra-orally and extra-orally. Between two and three million non-melanoma skin cancers and 132,000 melanoma skin cancers occur globally each year. The goal with oral and skin cancer screening is to identify cancer early, when there is a greater chance for a cure. Many people have abnormal sores in their mouths with the great majority being noncancerous, making our screening techniques even more important. Any person with a history of tobacco and alcohol use or prior head and neck malignancy has a significant risk of developing an oral, head and neck cancer. You will be able to teach patients reasons why they suffer from radiation induced xerostomia, intra-oral problems associated with it, and management options available to make your patients more comfortable managing their symptoms.
