Author(s): Major Priyank Sen, Mohammad Ali R, Mohammed Haneef, Ishita Jakhanwal, Shailesh Shenoy*, Jayati Pandey and Ayesha Fatima

"Onco dentist" refers to a dentist who specializes in providing dental care to patients with cancer. This specialization involves understanding the unique oral health challenges that cancer patients may face due to the disease itself or its treatment, such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery. Onco dentists work closely with oncologists and other healthcare professionals to manage and prevent oral complications associated with cancer and its therapies, including mucositis, xerostomia (dry mouth), dental caries, periodontal disease, and oral infections. They play a crucial role in maintaining the oral health and quality of life of cancer patients throughout their treatment journey.
