Oral Medicine and Oral Oncology Treatment Approach

  • The Oral Medicine and Oral Oncology service provides a comprehensive, patient-oriented approach to clinical care. The clinical team consists of dentists with advanced training and board-certification in oral medicine, and expertise in the management of cancer patients. The team is dedicated to providing the highest level of care possible, and works in close communication with other members of your clinical team to ensure that your care is well-coordinated and comprehensive.

    In addition to providing care prior to cancer treatment, our oral medicine experts also manage any acute complications during treatment to minimize discomfort or functional disability so that patients can minimize the chances of interruption of their cancer therapies.

    After cancer treatment, we provide long-term follow-up to ensure good oral health and screen for potential late complications that can occur in the oral cavity.
