Dental Evaluation and Management of the Radiated Cancer Patient
(Presented with Nico de Wette, MD and Eric Dierks, DMD, MD)

 

The dentist and hygienist will learn about the preventive protocols for the pre-radiation patient and protocols for management of mucositis and the long term preventive issues of the head and neck cancer patient. The dental team will also learn about the special attempts by the radiation oncologist to preserve and minimize the damage to the oral structures. In seeing some of the complications caused by cancer treatment the dental team will better understand their role in maintenance and prevention for their special patients. ~
