April is National Oral Cancer Awareness Month
Free Oral Cancer Screenings for the public, April 23-27, 2012.
Mountain Dental is providing free visual head and neck oral cancer exams during the last week in April to educate the community about oral health. While all patients routinely receive visual head, neck, and oral cancer screenings during regular visits, April is recognized as Oral Cancer Awareness Month by the Oral Cancer Foundation. Mountain Dental is partnering with the Oral Cancer Foundation to bring community awareness about the important aspects of early screening and detection for this type of cancer.
It is not necessary to be a current Mountain Dental patient to receive these screenings, and this is at no cost to you. Patients who are screened and need further evaluation will be referred to a specialist. Enhanced screenings are also available for an additional cost, and can help to identify suspicious lesions earlier. A portion of the proceeds from the enhanced screenings will be donated to the Oral Cancer Foundation.
There are several important facts to recognize about oral cancer:
