Hindsight is Always 20/20: Missing the Oral Cancer Diagnosis

Through a guided visual journey of inspiring oral cancer stories of survivors and those who have lost their lives, learn the subtle life-saving symptoms and critical screening techniques that will increase our opportunity to save a life!

Lecture Synopsis:

“Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but foresight is better, especially when it comes to saving a life.” William Blake
The ability to save a life through earlier diagnosis is a gratification that may not be compared to anything we do in dentistry. Conversely, when we ‘miss’ a diagnosis, the sorrow that ensues is challenging to overcome. Both the medical and dental communities have been caught off guard with a changing and escalating profile coupled with a number of social trends that are placing our dental patient at heightened risk for oral and oropharyngeal cancer. Through a guided visual journey of inspiring oral cancer stories of survivors and those who have lost their lives, learn the subtle life-saving symptoms and critical screening techniques that will increase our opportunity to save a life!
