In honor of Oral Cancer Awareness Month, Dr. Christopher M. Pellegrino, D.M.D of Hingham Dental Associates has partnered with The Oral Cancer Foundation to offer free oral cancer screenings on Mondays during the month of April. Oral cancer is not a rare disease. Approximately 43,250 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer every year in the US. It kills one person every hour of every day, and over 115 new individuals will be diagnosed with it each day. The good news is that it can often be found early in its development, through a simple, painless, and quick screening.
All adults should get screened. With early detection, survival rates are high and the side effects are from treatment are at their lowest. Like other screenings you engage in oral cancer screenings are an effective means of finding cancer at its early, highly curable stages.
An oral cancer screening should be conducted every year, so take advantage of this free offer and get screened today. Call our office at 781-749-1099 to make an appointment for your complimentary screening.
