A must attend for all dental team members…are you aware of the escalating profile of oral and oropharyngeal cancers related to a common virus?
According to the CDC, nearly all sexually active adults will have a HPV
(Human papillomavirus) infection in their lifetime. This is fueling an escalating rise in the incidence of HPV- positive oropharyngeal cancer.
- What are the implications to dentistry and how should our oral cancer screening be adjusted to compensate for this new profile?
- How is the virus transmitted and once an infection becomes active, will it ever go away?
- How does an infection transform into a malignancy? Who is at risk? Why are men at least 6X more predisposed to HPV-related oropharyngeal cancer?
- Above all, how do we communicate this to today’s dental patient?
