As cancer survivorship increases, the impact of chronic oral and dental symptoms and conditions has increased. Prevention and management of oral complications are required from diagnosis to survivorship. The impact of acute oral problems in cancer patients is generally well identified. Late oral changes affect function, symptoms, and overall health and are under recognized. This course will review selected late effects of cancer therapy with a focus on patients with head-and-neck cancer and stem cell transplantation.
