    Details: The Massachusetts Oral HPV Task Force developed the first HPV dental toolkit in 2016 to improve HPV knowledge for dentists. Since then, it’s used in dental outreach across Massachusetts and has been successfully adapted in seven states.

    A newly launched version of the toolkit is now available, and its design reflects feedback from users and provides the most up-to-date recommendations. It also includes internal training materials on how to recommend the HPV vaccine, as well as in-office communication materials. Click here to access the free, downloadable toolkit.

    HPV infection can lead to oral cancers. Oropharyngeal cancer in men is rising sharply in recent years. Oral healthcare providers are in a great position to explain the risks of HPV and oral cancer and empower their patients ages 9 to 26 to get the HPV vaccine.
