Ep 95 Kris Potts RDH, BS, FAADH Talks PRE-habilitation and Cancer!
Kris Potts joins us to talk about oral care for oncology patients. We start with products for xerostomia and how to target the product based on their symptoms. We talk about prehabilitation and how you can better understand your patients who are about to have cancer treatment or have had it in the past. We discuss the importance of collaboration with the medical profession and how to have those conversations with the medical care providers
After listening to this episode you should be able to discuss the following:
- What preventative prehabilitation is and when it occurs.
- The relationship between the medical and dental fields and how it relates to treatment.
- The importance of documentation and how it helps develop the treatment?
- The kind of cancer malignancies that are found most often in the oral cavity.
