ORAL CANCER SCREENINGS

Cancer as you probably know is one of the most common killers in our society. You see your physician, internist, or gynecologist yearly for checkups to make sure the rest of your body is healthy—but do you ever think about the health of your oral tissues? At Carter Sledge Family Dentistry, we make sure an oral cancer screening is part of every 6 month recall appointment. The exam takes only about a minute, and is fast and non-invasive. Dr. Carter and Dr. Sledge are highly skilled and trained to recognize the warning signs of oral cancer by performing these screenings. Oral cancer kills 7500 people in the U.S. each year, and over 30,000 are diagnosed. Call us today to schedule your checkup!
