Jo-Anne Jones answers some more questions in-depth
Our webinar on oral cancer, entitled "The Oral Cancer Screening Examination: The Urgent Need for Change", with Jo-Anne Jones, RDH, on April 20, 2016, was a popular event.

Here, we present some of the questions people submitted after Jo-Anne’s presentation. Even if you were present at the webinar, you may want to review these questions and their answers.
