April is Oral Cancer Awareness month and Consumer Reports recently published a controversial article that said that oral cancer screening is a medical test that is unnecessary and over-recommended for anyone but high risk patients. This article from the March 2013 issue was quickly reviewed and the ADA and Oral Cancer Foundation quickly responded with their own research and advise for patients.
Read an article from Dr. Bicuspid that tells you more about the article and the ADA response here:
Dr. Holleron does do oral cancer screenings on each of our patients so you can be sure that you are getting the best and most complete oral care here at Tooth Acres. We have even started itemizing the Oral Cancer Screening on our treatment receipts so that you have documentation of your screening.
As always, Dr. Holleron and the staff at Tooth Acres are always happy to answer your questions regarding your dental care.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
