Human PapillomaVirus (HPV): Implications for the Oral Health Professions

This course will discuss the growing body of science associating HPV with head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCCs) and illustrate how this association has and will influence the practice of dentistry and dental hygiene. Attendees will learn why some of their approaches to patient treatment may require reexamination and modification. Through this course, participants will expand their knowledge base related to HPV, its association with HNSCC’s, the contrasts between carcinogen and HPV induced oral cancers, approaches to detection and lesion identification and proposed treatments for head and neck cancers and based on etiologic factors, their outcomes. Cases will be discussed to provide options for patient/provider interactions.


Through course participation, attendees will:

1. Identify how the association between HPV and HNSCC’s can alter oral healthcare delivery.
2. Differentiate between carcinogen induced and HPV associated head and neck cancers.
3. Discuss how oropharyngeal cancers can be detected.
4. Propose options for communication with patients at risk for HPV related OPC.
5. Describe how the HPV/HNSCC connection can broaden the role of the oral health professional.
