Lunch & Learn: Cancer Diagnosis? Your Dental Health is More Important Than Ever

About This Event

  • Event Type:Lunch & Learns

Hair loss and nausea are well-known side effects of cancer treatment. But for patients who have had head and neck radiation or chemotherapy, mouth and dental problems such as jaw pain, sensitive gums, change in taste, and mouth sores are possible too. Dr. Clay Couvillon is one of just a few dentists in the south who focuses on the dental management of cancer patients. During this month’s lunch and learn, Dr. Couvillon will talk about the importance of a healthy mouth before, during and after cancer treatment and how your weakened immune system can sometimes cause infection in the mouth, which could delay your cancer treatment.
