Cancer Prevention Through HPV Vaccination: An Action Guide for Dental Health Care Providers
The Dental HPV Education Program’s purpose is to educate dental professionals about the connection between HPV and oral, cervical, and other cancers. Dental professionals are provided with resources to encourage, and prepare, them for conversations with patients about HPV-related cancer and the HPV vaccine as a cancer prevention tool.This tool kit for dental offices includes materials and resources that can be reproduced and distributed at no cost. The kit includes:
- reproducible brochures for patients on HPV,
- an office poster,
- a resource sheet for dental professionals with “tips for talking to patients”,
- a reproducible "Rx pad" with information on the HPV vaccine,
- and CDC reference materials.
