Our Seattle area patients should always protect themselves against the dangers of oral cancer. The best thing anyone can do to fight oral cancer is to catch it early, which is why having an oral cancer screening is so important. Patients should have regularly scheduled oral cancer screening appointments, around once each year.

Mouth cancer can be deadly, but it also can be defeated. To raise your chances of beating oral cancer, early detection is key. The earlier your dentist notices signs of mouth cancer, the better chance you have at surviving it.
