Oral Cancer Awareness Month

April is Oral Cancer Awareness month. Oral Cancer awareness in the American public is low. Approximately 43,250 people in the U.S. will be newly diagnosed with oral cancer this year. As you are well aware, dentists are often the first line of defense against oral cancer, through the process of early discovery. While smoking and tobacco use are still major risk factors, the fastest growing segment of oral cancer patients is young, healthy, nonsmoking individuals due to the connection to the HPV virus. We cannot stop this virus from spreading; our only hope to save lives is with professional involvement and public awareness. This is your opportunity to get involved and give back to your community in hopes to raise oral cancer awareness and the need for early detection in order to save lives.
