About the seminar: 

Preventing and Managing Oral Side Effects of Cancer Treatments. Dental Oncology is an area of dentistry focusing on dental and oral manifestations of cancer and cancer treatments. Oral health is an aspect of cancer care that is often overlooked.

Oral side effects and untreated dental diseases can cause added pain, financial hardships, psychological distress, and a diminished quality-of-life. Oral effects can also lead to complications or delays of treatments, which can compromise successful outcomes. Side effects of treatments may have a continued negative impact long after cancer treatments have been completed and contribute to long-term damage to oral health.

At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Describe oral side effects of cancer treatments and how they may affect quality of life and mortality.
  • Discuss ways to avoid and manage short-term and long-term oral side effects.
  • Develop strategies for the medical team and dental team to work together to improve patient care.
  • Provide resources for patient education
