Oral Cancer Screening

April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month. The Oral Cancer Foundation states that 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. Dentists are often the first line of defense against oral cancer, through the process of early discovery. At Bateman Family Dentistry, we offer our patients a simple 2 minute test in the hygienist’s chair to detect the early signs of oral cancer.
