Mouth Cancer Action Month

By : Sue Ellen Umali

It's hard to believe that fall is almost over and winter is coming. While there's a bit more time before the snow hits, you shouldn't forget to bundle up to avoid getting caught off guard by the sudden change in temperature. The last thing you want is to get sick during the last few weeks of fall fun!

Although there are many fun events that are happening during the fall season, please note that November is also Mouth Cancer Action Month. The disease can affect the lips, tongue, cheeks, throat and other parts of the head and neck area.  

Our team here at Credit River Dental Centre would like to remind you the importance of oral cancer screening. Dr. Lee and our hygienists recommend that you see us for your complete oral examination every 2-3 years to detect signs of decay or disease. An early detection can save you from a number of different conditions such as oral cancer.

If we haven’t seen us for your complete oral examination, please call our office to set up an appointment.
