Dentists, prosthodontists, and dental hygienists may play an important role in the care of patients with an oral malignancy. Before any type of treatment is instituted, the patient should be seen by a dentist or prosthodontist who is acquainted with the specific problems related to the treatment of oral cancer. Additionally, establishing a good relationship at this stage is extremely helpful both for the patient and the dentist. The patient’s own dentist should be contacted and correctly informed when dental treatment is required.
