Oral Cancer Awareness Month news for dentists: GOCCLES oral cancer screening device app creator supports Benco live virtual webinar on early detection.
Two members of the Advisory Board for Oral Cancer Cause will offer CE during a dental webinar on early detection during Oral Cancer Awareness Month. Pierrel, creator the GOCCLES® device used in dental screening for oral cancer, sponsors the April 14 webinar on oral cancer early detection in dentistry.
The Benco Dental webinar is compliments of sponsor Pierrel, creator the GOCCLES® device used in dental screening for oral cancer. Pierrel recently launched a GOCCLES® app in support of its oral cancer screening device that uses the common curing light present in every dental office.
For many patients, the only comprehensive oral exam they regularly receive is from dentists.
That’s why it’s important for dental practitioners to understand how the oral cancer landscape is changing, along with patient demographics, various etiologies and survival rates. This Continuing Education live virtual course will help bring dentists up to date and enable them to play a potentially lifesaving role in their patient population.
3 dental innovators and experts share oral cancer screening strategies in this April webinar
Creator of the AGD (Academy of General Dentistry) Podcast Series Wes Blakeslee, DMD, FAGD, and specialist in Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology and Oral Pathology Ashley Clark, DDS, FACD will discuss the dental role in early detection of oral cancer in the complimentary live virtual webinar. Seating is limited for Oral Cancer and Your Patients | The Latest Line of Defense, and free registration is available here. Questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Early detection is key to successfully treating oral cancer. As webinar host, Benco Dental’s Kay Huff interviews clinical experts who:
- Explore why oral cancer is being diagnosed in younger patients
- Explain how to perform a proper head and neck examination
- Discuss various aspects of oral cancer, with a focus on squamous cell carcinoma, and more.
Among webinar experts, Deborah S. Laird, RPh, will share insights from Pierrel, a leader in oral cancer detection and creator of GOCCLES, which were awarded a ++++ 1/2 rating in a clinical evaluation by Dental Advisor.
When used with dental office curing lights, the optical filters of Pierrel’s award-winning GOCCLES eyewear provide simple, non-invasive and painless early screenings for oral cancer and precancerous lesions. Most recently, Pierrel introduced the launch of the GOCCLES App, suitable for iOS and Android, in support of its oral cancer screening device.
New app provides guided inspection of oral cavity to dental professionals
The GOCCLES App uses a library of reference images representing the most common oral lesions to provide dental professionals with a guided inspection of the oral cavity. In addition, online clinical support will be available through the app from professionals to help
identify suspicious lesions in case of uncertainties. An anamnestic file for each patient can be created with pictures taken with or without the GOCCLES smartphone camera clip, which is included in the GOCCLES kit. The app can be downloaded from the Apple Store or Google Play.
