Dental Awareness within Cancer Care

Most people are aware of common side effects of cancer treatment such as nausea and hair loss. However, most people who undergo cancer treatment develop complications that affect the mouth. Listen in as Alicia and Lizette speak with Dentist Dr. Nevin Waters, who founded his own practice in 1975 with the goal of treating each patient as he would have a family member.  He is an active member of the American Dental Association and founder and board member of the Kansas Foundation of Dentistry for the Handicapped.  Dr. Waters speaks about his experience as a dentist, his diagnosis of chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML), the importance of dental hygiene and how cancer treatments can affect an individual’s dental and oral health.
