Our fight against oral cancer can only be won with strong partnerships and collaboration. With allies, we can continue to drive change in the world of this disease.
The RDH community is vital to shaping how and when oral cancer is discovered. They are a powerful force in education- not only within the dental community, but the public they interact with on a daily basis. They recognize the growing problem of oral cancer and actively work in not only early discovery, but the dissemination of vetted information that raises awareness to those who may not know of this disease.
They promote these ideals in their professional lives while actively working with us in order to propel change. Many of our volunteer walk coordinators are RDHs, making them the driving force behind funds that go directly to research, educational campaigns, and advocacy. They partner with OCF year-round to conduct free oral screening events in their office, allowing those who don’t have the opportunity to regularly see a dental professional to be screened.
The RDH community are our champions for change, and that’s why we are excited to introduce our RDH Advisory Board. By partnering with those who are successful and influential within the RDH community, we can work together to change the world of oral cancer.
