A highly interactive hands-on workshop designed to equip today’s dental clinician with the skill set to recognize and identify the earliest warning signs of HPV and non-HPV oral and oropharyngeal cancer.  Breakout sessions will involve hands-on use of adjunctive screening devices, AirPlay mirroring of a live examination, and the review of techniques both extraoral and intraorally.  The integration of Teledentistry demonstrates the ability to assess, capture, annotate and manage findings providing your practice and dental patients with the best possible opportunity for earlier discovery of oral cancer.

  • To recognize the subtle, life-saving signs and symptoms that may accompany HPV oropharyngeal cancer.
  • To be introduced to clinical resources that will aid in assessment, documentation, and management pathways of an abnormal finding.
  • To be equipped with clinical resources and patient education materials related to this new profile.
