  6. Oral Cancer – An Emerging Pandemic AND Communicating with Impact - Jo-Anne Jones, April 6, 2013,  9am to 3:30 pm, Western Development Museum, Saskatoon

    There has never been a greater sense of urgency to adhere to close examination of the oral cavity for early discovery of mucosal abnormalities. The historic etiologic patterns related to exposure to alcohol and tobacco are being challenged by a more recently identified etiology being viral in nature and sexually transmitted. Both the medical and dental communities have been alerted to this emerging pandemic.

    AND Do not ever underestimate the power of a great team and their ability to drive a business to the top. Positive communication and sup-port for one another through day to day challenges and opportunities of working in today’s dental practice is key. Through the effective handling of the most common challenges such as last minute cancellations and insurance driven thinking, learn how to re-energize your practice and enjoy your chosen profession.  Contact the SDAA for registration (306-252-2769)
