HPV-Related Head and Neck Cancers. Meet the Authors.

With a dramatically increasing incidence of HPV-related head and neck cancers in North America, dentistry is the first aggressive line of defense, and now offense, in saving lives and protecting quality of life.  From this webinar, we hope that dentists will have a better understanding of the incidences, causes and epidemiology of HPV-related head and neck cancers.

We will also explore the dentist’s role in patient care, coordinating health-based messages, communication and prevention, vaccine knowledge, and how we must work as a team to prepare for rising cases and rising costs.
