We are dedicated to keeping you safe and free from oral diseases, which is why we provide oral cancer screenings at Dillon Dental. The American Cancer Society estimates that over 30,000 new oral cancer cases are diagnosed each year in the U.S. with over 7,000 of those cases resulting in death. Our oral cancer screenings can help us catch oral cancer in its earliest stages, when it can be treated more easily and effectively.
In addition to oral cancer screenings at your six-month visits, we recommend visiting us for a dedicated oral cancer screening at least once a year. Contact Dillon Dental in West Los Angeles today if you notice any changes in your gums, neck, throat, tongue, mouth, or any other areas near the mouth as this may be a sign of oral cancer. We look forward to helping you achieve optimal oral health.
