Dr. Cindy Roark discusses the link between HPV and Oral Cancer. 

Dr. Cindy Roark is chief clinical director of Coast Dental, one of the largest comprehensive general and specialty dental services providers in the United States.  Coast Dental has 183 locations in five states and continues to grow.  Through Dr. Roark’s efforts, Coast dentists use advanced technology in their practices including lasers and oral cancer screening technology, and incorporate a progressive protocol for preventing, detecting and treating periodontal disease without surgery. 

Dr. Roark stays current on research, treatment protocols, techniques and trends in dentistry through regular participation in continuing education programs and completed advanced training in dental implants, endodontics, lasers, aesthetic dentistry and reconstructive dentistry. 
Dr. Roark began her clinical practice 11 years ago in Massachusetts where she was in solo practice.  She joined Coast Dental in 2004 as a practicing dentist in Florida; later moving to a Coast practice in Georgia.  While in Georgia, she was tapped by Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, Tennessee, to leverage her Coast Dental experience to lay the groundwork for the University’s first group practice residency program.  She did so while maintaining a full-time clinical practice as a member of an interdisciplinary team in the Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.   
Dr. Roark returned to Coast Dental to practice in Tampa and assume her current role where she is responsible for clinical education, quality assurance and evaluating new technologies and protocols.
