Oral Cancer Screening
Did you know that only 15% of all dental professional’s screen patients for oral cancer as part of your regular exam?
The dental community is the first line of defense in early detection of oral cancer. However, a recent study published by the ADA revealed that only 15% of dentists screen their patients as part of a regular exam. At Dr. Zak Dental Care, we are proud to be in this minority. Currently only half of all patients diagnosed with oral cancer survive more than five years, but this is because they are diagnosed in later stages.
We have the skills and tools to ensure that early signs of cancer and pre-cancerous conditions are identified. We are committed to fighting and winning the battle against oral cancer through timely detection.
