Did you know that April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month? We’re encouraging all of our patients to make sure their next checkup is scheduled! During your examination, we will perform an oral cancer screening as well as look for other oral health problems.
By catching these types of issues when they are small, it’s much easier to treat. It’s especially important to stay vigilant about screening for oral cancer if you smoke, drink alcohol regularly, or have the HPV virus. Those can increase your risks for this disease.
Awareness is key! Make sure your friends and family have their next checkup scheduled too. To make an appointment, call Summit Dental at 201-366-7001 for our Hackensack office, or call at 201-347-1417 for our Tenafly office. You can also schedule online.
