Department of Dental Oncology and Maxillofacial Prosthetics
The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre Department of Dental Oncology and Maxillofacial Prosthodontics is a group that consists of 11 dentists, 1 hygienist, 1 lab technician and 10 support staff. The dental clinic exists to provide medically necessary dental services to specific cancer patients, cardiac patients and transplant patients. In any given year, the team sees around 1500 new patients, the vast majority being cancer patients, for dental clearance prior to proceeding with their cancer care. Treatment plans (limited to the dental treatment that is medically necessary) are usually performed within 24hours – 1 week of the patient’s new patient exam. This requires collaboration, flexibility and most importantly, a primary focus on putting the patient first.
The team displays excellence in the work that is done on a daily basis, for example by holding weekly (now virtual) rounds to discuss the treatment plans for each new patient seen and amending plans as necessary so that all patients receive the same level of care, or by utilizing the various specialists on staff to provide patients with optimal outcomes. In the context of the pandemic, the team has displayed great integrity. While the decision to remain open during the height of the pandemic was fraught, it was borne under the moral obligation to provide dental care to those patients who continued to receive critical medical and cancer care.
This team of dynamic professionals has the patients’ best interests and experience at heart day in and day out. The clinic is at the cutting edge of technology, which greatly benefits its patients. It is a mature practice, but one that is continually improving through its dedication to ongoing training.
Its staff is welcoming and always available to answer questions and to educate, reassure, and motivate patients. This is a team where mutual respect and assistance, excellence, and self-improvement are all important values.
