This year, more than 50,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer. Oral cancers can be particularly challenging, because patients often experience little or no symptoms until the cancer has progressed. We strongly believe that routine dental check-ups with oral cancer screenings can be vital to early detection and treatment. That is why we perform these screenings on every patient at every cleaning visit. Additionally, we have partnered with The Ohio State University James Cancer Hospital to educate and inspire our doctors in these areas.
