For 40 years, the mortality rate for oral cancer has not changed. In North America, one person dies from this fatal condition every hour. But there is good news! When this type of cancer is detected in early stages, there is an 80 to 90% cure rate. At every check-up and cleaning, we give a visual screening of your mouth and gums for any abnormality. If we detect anything, you are referred to an oral surgeon for further examination. We don't take any risks with your health, and this screening could literally save your life.
