Greater awareness and knowledge of oral cancer has been shown to increase patient presentation for opportunistic oral cancer screening. Screening is crucial for early detection of oral cancer to reduce morbidity and mortality rates. This study aimed to identify the level of awareness and knowledge of oral cancer amongst adult dental patients attending Charles Sturt University Dental and Oral Health Clinics (CSU-DOHC) in NSW. It was hypothesised that socio-demographic factors would have a significant influence on self-declared awareness and knowledge of oral cancer.
