Not too long ago one of our patients sent us a note regarding our diagnosis of his wife’s cancer, which I picked up on a routine screening of her mouth and tongue. He credits the diagnosis as “saving his wife’s life.”
As we often point out, cancer screening is one more reason it is so important for our patients to keep their regular appointments. Even though we may be known as one of Cleveland’s leading dental offices for general and cosmetic dentistry, we make cancer screening part of every hygiene exam, along with a periodontal examination and search for decay and broken fillings.
We wish our patient a healthy recovery following both surgery and radiation therapy for her oral cancer.
