April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month

Oral cancer affects so many people in the United States. It is a deadly disease that hurts so many families around the country. Dr. Charlyn Quiec and her team are proud to team up with The Oral Cancer Foundation to help raise awareness about Oral Cancer throughout the month of April.

It is estimated that over 40,000 new cases of oral cancer will be diagnosed in the United States this year. What is more interesting, is that most of these new cases will not be people who smoke or use tobacco. A large segment newly diagnosed oral cancer patients will have gotten the disease from the HPV virus. There is no cure for HPV, and the only hope of stopping oral cancer from this virus is through early screenings and detections by dentists.

That is why Dr. Q is providing free oral cancer screenings to patients throughout the month of April. To schedule your free screening, please call (626) 599-9818 today.
