Protect Your Health With Annual Oral Cancer Screenings From Sundance Dental And Orthodontics In Farmington NM
Oral cancer is a severe and life-threatening disease. Every year, over thirty thousand patients will be diagnosed with mouth cancer. Over half of those patients will fall into the illness within five years. Each day, one hundred new cases of oral cancer are diagnosed, and another patient dies from the disease each hour because they didn’t receive care soon enough. The key to surviving a disease like oral cancer is early detection. At Sundance Dental and Orthodontics throughout New Mexico, including Farmington, NM, and Rio Rancho, we protect our patients and help them feel secure by offering regular oral cancer screenings. In addition, we recommend that each patient visit our office annually for an oral cancer screening.
