Dr. John Wright and Dr. Linda Niessen discuss HPV and oral cancer.

A decade ago, oral cancer was mainly associated with tobacco and alcohol users, but now the sexually transmitted human papilloma virus has replaced tobacco as the number one cause of all new cases of oral cancer. Approximately 37,000 Americans will receive this cancer diagnosis in 2013.

Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry invites you to go inside the mouth as dentist and oral pathologist Dr. John Wright discusses the human papilloma virus and oral cancer during a live webcast of Dental Health Check Monday, July 29, at noon (CDT). Fellow dentist Dr. Linda Niessen will host the live hour-long event allowing viewers to ask questions, find out who is most at-risk and increase their awareness of these diseases.
