We take the fight against oral cancer seriously. Early detection plays a vital role in cancer treatment and outcomes-research fund, which is why we established the Premier Dental of Ohio Cancer Research fund. Our dentists provide a standard screening of the head, neck and mouth to discover signs of oral cancer.
Oral cancer incidence has been growing at an alarming rate year over year. The primary drivers include tobacco & alcohol use and the pervasive presence of HPV (Human Papilomavirus), which can be transmitted to the mouth and throat. Consider these facts:
Premier Dental of Ohio is committed to the fight against oral cancer. Rather than charging for an advanced screening, we perform them for free on every patient. In return, we ask that you join us by making a small contribution of your choosing at the practice. We will add to your contributions and 100% of the funds will be donated to The James Comprehensive Cancer Center and The Joan Bisesi Fund for Head and Neck Oncology Research. Together our support can make a difference in the fight against cancer.
Oral cancer is a disease that kills approximately one person every hour. There are some cases (less than ten percent) that do not have an identifiable cause. In the majority of cases, there is a specific identifiable cause or causes. This means that in most cases, we can prevent oral cancer from occurring by avoiding the various causes.
Who better to recognize oral cancer than your dentist? Dentists are trained to recognize mouth changes during a routing oral cancer screening.
