“Oral cancer is on rise and a good bit of cancers can be detected in the mouth first. It is very important to visit your dental office for regular cleanings and be sure to ask for an oral cancer screening once a year” says 3V Dental Associates’ Dr. Irina Kellerman-Volk
According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, approximately 49,750 people in the U.S. will be newly diagnosed with oral cancer this year. 132 new people in the U.S. every day will be newly diagnosed with oral cancer, and that one person every hour of the day will die from oral cancer. While smoking and tobacco use are still major risk factors, the fastest growing segment of oral cancer patients is young, healthy, nonsmoking individuals due to the connection to the HPV virus.
“3V Dental Associates would like to take the opportunity to get involved and give back to our local community in hopes to raise oral cancer awareness and the need for early detection in order to save lives.”
