April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month. That makes it a good time to visit your dentist as well. when you visit us for a dental cleaning and exam, we can conduct an oral cancer screening while you are here.
This year an estimated 54000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer, according to The Oral Cancer Foundation. While we hope you are not one of them, if you do have this disease we would rather you find out sooner than later as the survival rate is 80 to 90 when oral cancer is found early.
At the office of Jennifer Perkins DDS in Huntsville, AL, we welcome you to call 256-801-0002. Check our website regularly for updated information on the treatments we can provide, or contact us online.
