Two topics that are very important to us at the Thriving Dentist Show are new technology advances and oral cancer screening. This interview with Robert Whitman combines both of these topics in a compelling interview. Robert brings a medical engineering mindset to the dental profession. He has both a B.S and M.S.E. in biomedical engineering and began his career at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center using fluorescence technology to detect cervical cancer. He now serves as CEO and Director of Clinical Education for OralID and is using fluorescence technology to screen for oral cancer. In this interview, Gary and Robert discuss recent trends in oral cancer including the reason for the recent increase in oral cancer cases from people outside of the historic ‘at risk’ groups. Robert explains how advances in fluorescence technology can be incorporated into your practice as a screening tool.
