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. Dr. Ullery provides a standard screening of the head, neck and mouth to discover signs of oral cancer in patients at our Oakwood practice.
The need for screening.
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:
Roughly 36,000 cases of oral cancer will be diagnosed this year. (American Cancer Society)
40% of those diagnosed will die within five years. (National Cancer Institute)
The high oral cancer mortality rate is due to late-stage diagnosis. (Oral Cancer Foundation)
Exposure to the HPV-16 virus is the fastest-growing risk factor for oral cancer. (Oral Cancer Foundation)
Men above the age of 45 and elderly patients have the highest risk of developing oral cancer. (Oral Cancer Foundation)
90% of oral cancer occurs in patients 45 years or older, which encompasses “all” 84M Baby Boomers. (Oral Cancer Foundation)

This is such a great dental office. Dr Ullery and her team are so nice. I’ve always been nervous going to the dentist, but they changed that for me. This is the best experience I’ve had and will continue to go back.
Visited as a new patient, and couldn’t have been happier with the experience. Everyone incredibly personable and friendly. Would highly recommend to anyone local looking for a new dentist.
A Heavenly Experience
Premier Dental of Oakwood is a heavenly experience! I don’t always enjoy going to the dentist, but this team turns a ‘not-so-fun-have-to’ into an uplifting, bright, boost to my day! I highly recommend this dental team if you are like me and dread the dentist!
