Take a moment and watch the video testimonial below! SAVE A LIFE!
April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month. We want to make sure that our patients are educated on the dangers of oral cancer. Oral cancer is the sixth leading cancer now. Major risk factors include tobacco use, drinking alcohol, and HPV. This is why we are seeing it more and more in the younger generation. However, 25% of those diagnosed have no major risk factors at all. That is why it is so important that your dentist regularly checks you for oral cancer. They are the only healthcare provider that is supposed to find oral cancer at it's earliest stages. At Stanford Dental, we use the VELscope Oral Cancer Screening that can detect oral cancer before it is detectable by the naked eye. The change for survival is dramatically increased when you catch it before you can see it. Typically, oral cancer is called the silent killer because it is painless and can go unnoticed. Make sure that your dentist checks you for oral cancer at every dental check-up and even better if they use the VELscope Oral Cancer Screening. For this month, we are giving away our VELscope Oral Cancer Screening for FREE to our patients! Spread the word about oral cancer and you could help save a life!
