Black men have the lowest 5-year survival of oral and pharyngeal cancers (OPCs), despite having a lower OPC incidence than White men, due to access to care barriers. Thus, my primary interest is in discovering ways to increase access to and utilization of dental care services among Black men with high OPC cancer risk.
