AGD Foundation Highlights at AGD2018
The AGD Foundation has committed to raising awareness of oral cancer, risk factor prevention, and supporting the general dentist as the public’s first line of defense against this deadly disease. Early detection is key. Because dentists often can detect the disease in its early stages, the dental community is positioned to serve as the first line of defense against oral cancer.
Oral Cancer Screenings
To raise awareness of oral cancer, the AGD Foundation will offer free oral cancer screenings, public service announcements and risk factor prevention education during the AGD Scientific Session, June 7–9, 2018, in New Orleans.
Dentist and hygienist volunteers are needed to provide oral cancer screenings for the public during the AGD Foundation Oral Cancer Screenings community outreach event to provide free oral cancer screenings for the public. The screenings will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Friday, June 8, 2018, in New Orleans, during the AGD 2018 Scientific Session.
Please note: The Louisiana Board of Dentistry may grant a provisional license not to exceed 60 days in duration for any dentist or dental hygienist who is in good standing in the state of their licensure and who wishes to provide gratuitous services to the citizens of Louisiana. All volunteer dentists and hygienists, whether licensed in Louisiana or licensed out-of-state, must provide copies of their practice license and proof of professional liability valid during the dates of the oral cancer screenings. Please provide copies of your documents with the Volunteer Form, to the AGD Foundation, by April 1, 2018. Do not send to the Louisiana Board of Dentistry. Questions?
