Oral Cancer Screening
We provide oral cancer screenings as part of our regular exam. However, we are one of only 15% of dentists who screen their patients for this deadly condition, according to a recent ADA study. This is highly disconcerting, because only half of those diagnosed with oral cancer survive more than five years post-diagnosis, and the dental community should be doing their part to change those numbers by improving the chances of early detection. We are dedicated to fighting and winning the battle against cancer with our patients, and stress early detection as a great method of achieving that goal.
