What if the patient’s dental needs are beyond what can be completed prior to the scheduled start of cancer treatments?
We want to accommodate the patient in every way to ensure there is no delay in starting cancer treatments. If this is not possible, contact the oncologist to discuss the patient's oral condition. Our main goal is to obtain an acceptable level of oral health, free of decay and infection. Now is not the time to be including optional "high end" restorative treatment plans.
What if a new patient indicates that he had cancer a few years ago and has not been seen by a dentist since?
We need to know what kind of cancer and what type of treatments he experienced. These answers may affect our treatment plans.
