Oral Cancer Screening
As a comprehensive dental practitioner – and the only medical professional in a position to routinely evaluate your mouth and detect abnormalities – Dr. Strickland offers routine oral cancer screenings to you as a patient. As with other cancers, early detection is vital. There will be 41,000 Americans diagnosed with oral cancer this year, resulting in 12,500 deaths. Unless you seek regular continuous care from a dental professional, you could be putting your health at risk by delaying a diagnosis in the early stage of oral cancer. Dr. Strickland and his team are dedicated to providing this potentially life-saving procedure for you.
Oral Cancer Statistics:
- Deaths due to oral cancer equal 1 person per hour, 24 hours per day.
- The death rate is high not due to difficulty of diagnosis but due to late diagnosis.
- Oral cancer is three times more common than cervical cancer.
- Despite these troubling statistics, there is a 90% success rate if oral cancer is detected early.
