April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month

Apr 1, 2024

Dental associations urge regular oral cancer examinations – early detection saves lives!

Oral cancer screening is a quick process that takes only a few minutes, and dental professionals know that early detection of a problem can lead to faster and less invasive cancer treatment.

It’s important to discuss why oral cancer screenings are performed with your patients. If you come across suspicious areas, it’s crucial to recommend a follow-up appointment. If the suspicious area is still present at the follow-up,  encourage the patient to have the lesion examined for their peace of mind.

Dental professionals have expertise in the anatomy of the mouth, head, and neck, and by looking beyond the teeth and broadening our view, we can make a difference in the lives of our patients.
