Guideline for the Early Detection of Oral Cancer in BC 2008
At the request of the College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia, this guideline has been written by a working group of the BC Oral Cancer Prevention Program, which is a multidisciplinary team composed of clinicians and scientists from the BC Cancer Agency.
This guideline is intended to provide guidance about the appropriate use of oral cancer screening techniques and to help dentists make informed decisions about screening for oral cancer in practice. It should be used to facilitate clinical decision-making.
Due to the importance of ongoing research related to oral cancer screening, this guideline will be updated on a regular basis with multidisciplinary input.
