Cultural Considerations in Dentistry

practitioners ability to relate to and treat patients of all ethnic
backgrounds. This class is specialized to best benefit the audience that

demographics of the area.
- Acculturation and its effects on treatment plan acceptance. (What
cultural factors could be taken into account with treatment plan)

Literacy- What we expect patients to know and what we as
professionals should know about each patient.

Stress is a fascinating subject! Research suggests that just enough stress makes you “tough”, but too much will “break” you! How do we temper our stresses to ensure success? This mini-course will introduce a few modalities that are available for reducing the impact of stress on your overall health.
The One Screening Your Patients Can't Live Without
Instructor: Susan Cotten
According to The Oral Cancer Foundation, one person dies every hour of
every day from oral cavity and oropharyngeal cancers in the U.S. For years, the leading cause
was heavy tobacco and alcohol use. But that’s changed with the emergence of the human
papilloma virus (HPV-16) which now accounts for 60-70 percent of all oral cancer.
We are uniquely positioned to screen for abnormalities and save the lives of countless patients.
But expanded screening protocols are the key as HPV-16 has necessitated the watch for
additional symptoms. Join us as we review HPV and discuss screening and referral best
practices, including a hands-on demonstration of this modern life-saving safeguard against head
and neck and oral cancer.
Upon completion of the course, attendees will be able to:
-Know the signs and symptoms of HPV-16-caused oropharyngeal cancer
-Potentially save the lives of patients unknowingly carrying symptoms of oral cancer
-Implement best practice protocol for the intra- and extra-oral cancer screening
