All OC current patients/survivors please take a few minutes to take part in a Dental Needs Research Study. Its an online survey being conducted by Joel Epstein DMD, MSD and sponsored by Medactive Pharmacuticals. Its quick, the instructions say it takes less than 30 minutes, I found it to take only about 5 minutes. The survey is open to any OC patient, survivor or even their primary caregiver world wide. The caregiver must have first hand knowledge of the patients dental information and needs. As OC patients, many of us know first hand the lack of attention to our dental needs during treatments. By taking a few minutes to complete the survey it will help the medical and dental professions understand how critical it is to have proper dental care before, during and after the OC treatments.

Online Dental Survey

There is another "hands on" study for OC patients/survivors who reside in North America only. Its a two part online survey and a 10 day test of dental products specifically made for OC patients/survivors to help with dry mouth.

Part 2 Product Testing and 2 part online survey

If you have any questions please send me a PM or there is direct contact info included with the survey.

Thank you in advance for being part of this. By working together we can help future OC patients.
