Oral Cancer Screening
Did you know that the dental community is your first line of defense in the early detection of oral cancer?
A recent study published by the ADA revealed that only 15% of dentists screen their patients as part of a regular exam. We are proud to be in this minority. Currently only half of all patients diagnosed with oral cancer survive more than five years, mostly because they were diagnosed in later stages of the condition. At Dr. Zak Family Dentistry, we have the skills and tools to ensure that early signs of cancer and pre-cancerous conditions are identified early on. Together we can fight and win the battle against oral cancer through timely detection.
