We have a genuine concern for your overall health and well-being. We perform an oral cancer screening with every exam.
In the United States, one person dies every hour from oral cancer. Oral cancer has a cure rate of more than 80 percent—if it is detected and treated early. That is why we feel it is important to perform an oral cancer screening with every exam.
