Restorative Dentistry - Caring for the Cancer Patient

Speakers: Theresa Leung and Claire Morgan, Consultants in Restorative Dentistry, Barts Health

Wednesday 25th February 2015

Learning aims and objectives

Theresa and Claire have agreed to give a 'double act' Webinar on the management of the cancer patients in a secondary care hospital setting. They will outline the role and function of the Restorative Dentist within a Head and Neck team and MDT. They will discuss the diagnosis and pre-treatment planning of patients receiving head and neck cancer care at their Trust; together with the treatment needs of such patients before, during and after surgical oncological care. Comparison will also be made in relation to pre-Stem Cell and pre-IV Bisphosponate dental assessments. They will emphasise the need for robust team care and will make comment on the recent peer review; in terms of the modern role of the Restorative Dentist in the H&N oncology MDT.
