April Is Oral Cancer Awareness Month: Utah Dental Group Offering Free Screening

Group Dentistry Now –

At least one dental group practice, Apex Family Dental, a seven office practice spread across Salt Lake, Tooele, and Davis counties, is offering completely free oral cancer screenings to the community throughout the month of April. April is Oral Cancer Awareness month across the country. Although oral cancer only accounts for approximately 3% of all cancer cases, there are still estimated to be over 45,000 Americans diagnosed this year. Because oral cancer is often detected at a late stage, only 60% of newly diagnosed people live longer than 5 years. Regularly scheduled preventative check-ups allow your dentist the opportunity to diagnose more serious health concerns, such as oral cancer. Apex believes in the importance of the fight against oral cancer, which is why they are leading the way in raising awareness and diagnoses within their community.
