Dental professionals are becoming more involved in interdisciplinary care, identifying symptoms in the oral cavity that may be indications of systemic disease. Some of the diseases of which dental professionals may see signs or symptoms include oropharyngeal cancer, gastroesophageal reflux disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and Peutz Jegher’s syndrome.
