Oral Cancer Screenings

Approximately one person every hour of every day dies of Oral Cancer in America. Most people are not aware of the potential risks; however, when detected early enough, the survival rate for oral cancer is very high. At one time, oral cancer was predominantly seen among smokers, however, increasingly, oral cancer is being seen in patients of all ages. Although smoking is still a leading factor, many other criteria such as age, family history, ethnicity and alcoholic consumption also play a role. At Vaughn Family Dental, we take oral cancer screenings very seriously. At every 6 month check up, an oral cancer screening will be completed, free of charge.
