COURSE DESCRIPTION

What is this class about?

Dental professionals are pressed for time in the busy day of serving patients and want to ensure optimal care for each patient. That includes the early detection of head and neck, oral, and oropharyngeal cancers.

Join oral cancer coach Susan Cotten (BSDH, RDH, OMT) for this content-rich program on oral and oropharyngeal cancer. By attending this course, attendees will have a solid knowledge of the Human Papillomavirus, and additional risk factors for oral cancer. You will also be able to recognize the signs and symptoms associated with oral and oropharyngeal cancer.

Susan will utilize her instructional screening videos to show and discuss components of a comprehensive visual, tactile, extraoral, and intraoral evaluation and techniques for optimal visualization. Attendees will leave inspired to return to work Monday morning to evaluate their oral cancer office systems, have the tools to assess and elevate their documentation to aid in reducing the risk of liability, increase their confidence in screening, and understand the importance of utilizing an oral cancer risk assessment.
