“I came to this by my own clinical shortcomings.”
“I need to start going back to what I was doing fresh out of Dental Hygiene school, that thorough head and neck screening.”
“Was I awake and alert when I was looking, or just looking?”
“You mean both dental hygienists and the dentist should be doing oral cancer screening, not just one?”
“We forget that we are not the patient’s friend, we need to put on that medical dental professional hat and have those conversations.”
“I’ve never had a patient say they don’t want to talk about that, they are grateful for the information.”
“Just talk about it like it’s common, because it is.”
“Be a medical professional, because we are.”
