The Oral Oncology faculty at the Erie County Medical Center Corporation present the latest information relevant to dentists, hygienists and dental assistants in the diagnosis, treatment and long-term care of the patient with oral and oral pharyngeal cancer. This course will cover the signs and symptoms of these cancers as well as the most common risk factors including HPV infection. Examples of clinical cases will be utilized to explain treatment strategies before, during and after cancer therapy for the entire dental team. The clinical cases will incorporate radiology, clinical photos, biopsy technique and maxillofacial prosthetics.
The ECMC Department of Oral Oncology & Maxillofacial Prosthetics was established in 2014 to provide cancer prevention, diagnosis, and management services to the WNY area. A multidisciplinary team approach is used to treat the oncology patient. Each doctor received their pre-doctoral education at UBSDM and pursued post-doctoral training in Oral Oncology or Maxillofacial Prosthodontics at various institutes. The faculty are affiliated with Otolaryngology within the UB Medical School, and several hold positions at the UBSDM.
