Oral cancer claims an alarming number of lives every year. However, the sooner it is detected, the better the chances of successfully treating it. Oral cancer is not always detectable to the untrained eye, and some of its symptoms are similar to those of other problems. As part of your exam at Ashland Dental Arts, our dentist, Dr. Gretchen Drees, will perform a visual screening for the warning signs of oral cancer. If it is time for your regular appointment, don’t forget your oral cancer screening in Ashland, Virginia. Call 804-798-7388 today and we will be happy to help you get ready for your appointment.
