Did you know that the survival rate for oral cancer has not significantly improved in decades? In fact, the death rate associated with oral cancers is higher than that of cervical and testicular cancers, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, laryngeal cancer, and endocrine system cancers such as thyroid or skin cancers like malignant melanoma.
Given these statistics, you won’t want to miss this month’s Mastermind Webinar, “Shining a Light on Intra Oral Cancer” with special guest Rob Whitman. Join Rob and I as we learn more about cancers of the head and neck.
But most importantly, join us because you want to make a difference in the lives of your patients through early detection and early intervention. Be Part of the Change! Screening is the beginning of the end of oral cancer!
I’ll meet you on the webinar!
Shining a Light on Intra Oral Cancer
with special guest
Robert J. Whitman MSE, CEO and Director of Clinical Education, OralID
Screening is the beginning of the end of oral cancer! Did you know that 1 person per hour, 24 hours per day, dies from oral or pharyngeal cancer and that more than 43,250 new cases will be diagnosed this year? What can you do to be part of early diagnosis? This one-hour webinar will outline the types of technology available to help you see beyond the naked eye. In addition you will discover tips on how to introduce this technology to your patients and incorporate it into daily practice.
On this webinar you will learn:
- Statistics of oral cancer, morbidity & mortality rates
- The types of fluorescing technology available
- How to best introduce this technology to your patients
- Common risk factors for oral cancer
Mr. Whitman brings a medical engineering mindset to the dental industry. A graduate of Tulane University with both a B.S. and M.S.E. in biomedical engineering, he began his career at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center as a clinical engineer who used fluorescence technology to detect cervical cancer. Shortly thereafter, Whitman joined the research and development department for Remicalm LLC/Trimira LLC and engineered cancer screening products that incorporated the fluorescence technology developed at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. Whitman’s extensive clinical engineering experience allowed him to become a manager of technical sales for Trimira, where he focused on training customers how to properly use fluorescence technology in order to detect oral cancer.
