It’s reported that one person dies every 60 minutes from oral cancer.
To help reduce the number of oral cancer related deaths, Great Expressions Dental Centers will offer free oral cancer screenings to the public throughout the month of April, which is Oral Cancer Awareness Month.
Oral cancer often goes unnoticed as it is painless at the start, so it’s vital to visit your dentist regularly where you can get checked for this life-threatening condition.
During screening for oral cancer, the face, mouth, lip, tongue and neck are examined.
Prevention begins with knowing what to look for and be mindful of causes.
