Coming to a Dental Clinic Near You: The Cancer Patient

With Dr. Jessica Metcalfe and Dr. Erin Watson

Cancer is scary for the patient, but you, as a dental clinician, should be comfortable treating The Cancer Patient. From head and neck cancer to blood cancers and everything in between, you should have an understanding of questions to ask and answers to provide your patients. Treating The Cancer Patient in a safe and comfortable environment will help ease your mind and the mind of your patient.
