April is Oral Cancer Screening Month

April is Oral Cancer Screening Month, which aims to raise awareness about the importance of oral cancer screenings and early detection. Oral cancer is a serious and potentially life-threatening disease that can affect anyone, regardless of age or lifestyle.

More than 50,000 people in the US are likely to be diagnosed with oral cancer this year (Oral Cancer Foundation, 2023). However, early detection and treatment can greatly improve the chances of successful recovery.

During this month, healthcare professionals encourage their patients to get screened for oral cancer. The screening process is simple and painless. It involves a visual examination of the mouth and throat. Dental professionals may also use special tools to examine any suspicious areas more closely.

If you have not had an oral cancer screening recently, you might consider making an appointment with Oak Bark Dental. It only takes a few minutes and could potentially save your life. Remember, early detection is key when it comes to all cancers, including oral cancer.

Let’s work together to raise awareness about oral cancer and the importance of regular screenings. By taking proactive steps to protect our oral health, we can ensure a happier and healthier future for ourselves and our loved ones. Get in touch with Dr. Palmer and her team at Oak Bark Dental when you’re ready.
