Oral Cancer Screening
Did you know that according to a recently published study by the ADA, only 15% of dentists screen their patients for Oral Cancer?
As part of our regular exam we perform a normal cancer screening; we are, unfortunately, one of the few that do this. It is very concerning that so many dentists bypass this screening because only 50% of those afflicted with oral cancer survive over 5 years post-diagnosis, and the dental community can easily change those numbers with the help of early detection. At Dr. Zak Downey Dental Care, we are committed to fighting and winning the battle against cancer with our patients, and championing early detection.
