Oral cancer affects 30,000 people each year in the U.S. alone. A national campaign to reduce the incidence of this disease calls upon general dentists to perform an oral cancer screening as part of every patient?s routine dental checkup. Given the devastating consequences of a missed or delayed diagnosis, all dentists should take responsibility for learning how to detect signs of oral cancer in their patients. This authoritative guide was written by a team of experts at the University of Maryland to address this very need. It gives practical, step-by-step instructions for performing an oral cancer examination and for detecting signs of the disease at the earliest stage possible. In addition, the book details comprehensive procedures for managing and rehabilitating patients who have been diagnosed with this disease. Finally, it offers specific advice for counseling patients on how to reduce their risk of developing oral cancer.
