About the Service
Chemotherapy can cause anemia, bleeding and a lowered immune system. At the same time, the mouth is a common source of infection and a potential site for such complications. Our general dentists have special hospital-based training and expertise in helping cancer patients prepare for their chemotherapy and in managing any oral complications during and after chemotherapy.
About the Division of Dentistry
The Massachusetts General Hospital Division of Dentistry is a hospital-based group practice containing multiple dental specialists under one roof. Like traditional dental practices, we are open to the public and provide all aspects of preventive, therapeutic and restorative dental care.
