OVERVIEW:
Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is an aggressive epithelial malignancy that is the sixth most common neoplasm in the world today. Despite numerous advances in treatment the long-term survival has remained ~55%. This poor long-term survival is due to a number of factors including delayed diagnosis and the development of multiple primary tumors. Therefore, the early detection and prevention of all premalignant lesions is critical for the long-term survival of these patients.
 
OBJECTIVES:
• Emphasize the role of dental health care professionals in early detection and prevention of oral cancer
• Review the commercially available adjunctive screening devices and tests for oral cancer screening
• Present the new American Dental Association Clinical Guideline recommendations for oral cancer screening
