Alberta Wellness Summit: What is the Role of Dentists in HPV-Related Oropharyngeal Cancer?


This spring, the Alberta Dental Association and College kicks off a brand-new conference in Calgary. The Alberta Wellness Summit, happening May 23-25, will take specific focus on dentists’ physical, mental, and financial wellness. This summit includes activities like walks and hikes in the beautiful Bow River Valley, and even morning yoga before sessions begin.

Today, we speak with Dr. Seema Ganatra, Oral Pathology Specialist and Professor at the University of Alberta. Dr. Ganatra is a graduate of the DDS program at the University of Alberta. She completed specialty training in oral and maxillofacial pathology at Indiana University School of Dentistry in 1995 and completed a master’s of science in dentistry in 1996. She subsequently did post-graduate training in oral and maxillofacial radiology at Indiana University School of Dentistry. Seema is board certified in oral pathology in the United States and is a fellow of the Royal College of Dentists in Canada. She is a clinical professor at the University of Alberta, School of Dentistry and is involved in teaching dental and dental hygiene students, patient care (consultation practice in oral medicine and oral pathology) and participates in the oral pathology biopsy service.

Dr. Ganatra’s session is titled HPV and Oral/Oropharyngeal Cancers and runs on Friday, May 24, 2019 @ 9:00am & 1:30pm.
