My patient has cancer: how can I help?

Tuesday 28th January, 8.00pm


The Irish Society for Disability and Oral Health were proud to present the second of last season’s ISDH Winter Webinars series. This Webinar was delivered by experts with a unique perspective on this topic. Meera Shah is a dentist with a background in special care dentistry and offers a rare insight from a dentist living with incurable cancer. Meera is joined by her colleague Elizabeth Gonzales Malaga, STR in Special Care Dentistry at Northamptonshire Healthcare Foundation Trust, and a Clinical Fellow for East Midlands NHS Foundation Trust.

After the webinar, participants were able to:

  • understand the lived experience of cancer diagnosis from a dental perspective;
  • apply tips and tricks to make life easier for patients diagnosed with cancer; and,
  • understand the impact of osteoradionecrosis (ORN) and how it can be prevented.
