A common question asked by cancer patients is, “How do I find a dental oncologist in my area?” If you’re outside the Los Angeles Area, I recommend visit the American College of Prosthodontists website at www.GoToAPro.org. On that website there is a directory where you can search by zip code for a prosthodontist. It will list those who have training in treating patients who have had cancer. The type of training to look for is Maxillofacial Prosthetic Training.
If you are in the Los Angeles area, please feel free to call my office at 818-986-9036. I am one of only two Prosthodontists in the San Fernando Valley who are specially trained to treat Oral Cancer patients and that’s a good place to start if you’re local.
