Discussing the cause and effect relationship between oral sex and oral cancer is not easy for anyone. However, since nearly every person who is sexually active will have an HPV infection in their lifetime, and since HPV is now the leading cause of oropharyngeal cancer, it has become a topic worth investigating and sharing with our patients.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify the risk factors associated with HPV-related oropharyngeal cancer.
  • Recognize the obstacles clinicians face in providing HPV education in the dental practice.
  • Discover the tools necessary for patient education and discussing HPV with our adult and adolescent patients.

This course is designed for dentists and dental hygienists.
