  • John Olsen, D.D.S., MAGD, DICOI

Despite all the advances in surgeries, radiation, and chemotherapies, the overall survival rate for oral cancer is approximately 50%. It is quite apparent that the survival rate is correlated with the diagnosis of the cancer at stage I or II. Oral cancer is the 6th deadliest cancer in America. There are 8,000 deaths yearly from oral cancer, more than melanoma and cervical cancer. The prevention and diagnosis of oral cancer at an early state is the key to a patient’s survival from this deadly disease.

Learning Objectives:
1) Discuss with your patient population the cause and consequences of oral cancer.
2) Diagnose oral cancer of the patient population at an early stage.
3) Discuss the possible treatment and removal of an oral cancerous lesion at an early state with the patient population.
