Oral side effects and untreated dental diseases can cause added pain, financial hardships, and psychological distress for those being treated for cancer. They can also lead to complications or delays in treatments, which can compromise treatment outcomes. Oral changes may have a continued negative impact throughout survivorship.

While highlighting the human element of cancer care and quality of life issues, this presentation will provide tools for a well-rounded approach to optimal patient care through a focus on prevention, patient education, and product selection.
