The price is now $175 for all participants and will not increase with other ADA annual meeting fees after the advance registration deadline.
There is much to learn about oropharyngeal cancer and how dentists, oncologists, head and neck surgeons and other health professionals can and should work together. A coordinated and multifaceted approach can help reduce cases and produce better treatment results for patients. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn from leading researchers and professionals. Get the latest science, research and statistics on oropharyngeal cancer and learn how you can be part of prevention and treatment solutions.
In addition to the symposium, ADA News recently reported the ADA and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center are combining their expertise to focus on increasing human papillomavirus vaccinations and tobacco cessation for oral cancer prevention. Their goal is to help improve patient outcomes through programs aimed at dental and medical professionals and the public.
