What Is a Dental Oncologist?


Oncology is the specialty of medicine that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. Most cancer patients will experience oral side effects; this is why a dental oncologist is part of the health care team responsible for treating cancer patients. These trained professionals monitor and treat any oral issues during the treatment. Unlike oncology, this branch of medicine assists with the oral effects of chemotherapy and radiation.


When to Meet With Your Dental Oncologist?


Taking care of your oral health while undergoing cancer treatment is essential. Preventing and treating oral side effects can improve overall comfortability throughout the process. You should consult with a dental oncologist:

Before: Speak with a dental team before beginning your oncology treatment. An initial consultation will help detect any oral issues and infections, such as cavities or gum disease. Your dental professionals will teach you how to manage your oral health during your cancer journey and prevent problems from occurring.

During: Your dental oncologist will help alleviate and ease any oral side effects resulting from your treatment.

After: Regularly visit the dentist and dental hygienist to maintain good oral health.

Cancer is a long journey of treatment and recovery. However, the oral side effects that come with this process are manageable. A dental oncologist helps take care of any oral issues that may arise, improving your or your loved one’s comfortability. Remember to speak to your doctor and dentist if you or someone you care for are about to start their treatment process. Good oral hygiene is essential too, so remember to brush twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush, rinse with an antiseptic mouthrinse, and clean between your teeth with interdental brushes, floss, or water flossers daily.

Why choose us?

Our faculty perform cancer screening programs along with oral biopsy, brush cytology and toluidine blue staining to detect oral cancer. During these screening procedures, doctors look for any signs of cancer or precancerous conditions in the patients’ mouth and then suggest histo- pathological tests to confirm the stage and extent of the disease. In addition to screening, emphasis is also on the treatment and management of oral side effects such as oral mucositis ( inflamed mucosa), xerostomia (dryness of the mouth), dysphagia (difficulty in swallowing), infection, inability to eat, taste, swallow and speak, development of caries, trismus, tissue fibrosis and osteonecrosis, that may arise as a result of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and other immunosuppressive treatment.

Frequently asked questions

Chemotherapeutic agents are used to eliminate, reduce or alter the effect of microorganisms in the oral cavity and elevated levels of pro-inflammatory mediators. The term antimicrobial refers to agents that kill microbes or affect the growth and multiplication of microorganisms.

Chemotherapy and radiation therapy may cause changes in the lining of the mouth and the salivary glands, which make saliva. This can upset the healthy balance of bacteria. These changes may lead to mouth sores, infections, and tooth decay.
Good communication skills are essential to patient management and team-working. Given the accelerating rate of new drug and radiotherapy technologies, Oncologists must have a desire to develop and implement new treatments in their clinic.

You need to see the dentist at least two weeks before your chemotherapy begins. If you have already started chemotherapy and didn't go to a dentist, see one as soon as possible. You should also see a dentist as recommended or needed during and after treatment.

I went in for a cleaning but was not informed beforehand that my case won’t be handled by either of the Dr. Srinivasan’s. Staff was professional and courteous, however, the orthodontist on call definitely had a rough hand, making it an overall unpleasant experience. Moreover, the experience felt rushed given the urgency to meet the next appointment despite the 1/2 hr delay in starting mine. Also I firmly believe that patients can do without sarcasm when hearing recommendations from the on call hygienist. Often a simple yet non judgmental opinion is well received by patients. Anyway, hoping for a better experience next time if I do choose to go in.
