Miami Cancer Institute Dental Oncology Conference Series – HPV: What You and Your Patients Should Know

May 12, 2022

About 80 million people in the United States are currently infected with the human papillomavirus (HPV). Almost all sexually active people will get HPV at some time in their lives and most will never even know it. Luckily, most infections clear after about one year. If the infection is not eliminated by the immune system it can potentially lead to cervical, oropharyngeal, anal or genital cancer. Fortunately, there is a vaccine to prevent HPV. This course will discuss in detail what HPV is, how it is transmitted and its role in oropharyngeal cancer. The course will then focus on HPV prevention through vaccination and provide tips and resources on how to effectively talk to patients and parents about the virus and vaccine.
