Close to 42,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral or pharyngeal cancer this year. The death rate associated with oral cancer is particularly high not because it is hard to discover or diagnose, but due to the cancer being found too late.
At my office, we administer an oral cancer screening every time a patient comes in for a routine check-up. Not every dentist does this, and I am proud to say that we have caught many cases very early, and therefore have helped many patients avoid lengthy and sometimes ineffective treatment.
If you want more than just a dental checkup, but instead a comprehensive exam by a skilled dentist who cares not just your teeth but about your overall health, as well, please call my office for an appointment. You will be thrilled by the level of care we provide.
