Figure 1: The oral care protocol, timeline, and sequencing for preparing head and neck cancer (HNC) patients for radiotherapy (RT). The earliest one may clear patients for RT with a full complement of teeth and extraction of only third molars is 17–18 days (Blue line). Ignoring treatment for outliers, maximum time required to clear a patient for RT is 22–23 days (Yellow line)
