Early Detection Saves Lives

Did you know April is Oral Cancer Awareness month? 

This is a very big deal at Sarah Winter Dental. Oral cancer is on the rise, and the statistics are alarming. Unfortunately, it has a low survival rate. This is primarily due to late detection. It’s difficult to see the back areas of the tongue and throat. Dr. Winter wants to make sure everyone who visits her office is properly screened for this type of cancer, so her office uses the latest technology. Fluorescence technology utilizes a specialized light that helps identify oral cancer, pre-cancer and other abnormal lesions in its earliest stages, allowing for timely treatment. During the months of April, May and June, Sarah Winter Dental is offering free oral cancer screenings. Call her office to schedule your complimentary screening.
