Oral Cancer Foundation Sponsors 13th Annual Oral Cancer Awareness Month in April 2012

Organization encouraging dental professionals to offer free screenings to the public

March 6, 2012- Newport Beach, CA—

Did you know that the fastest growing segment of the oral cancer community is young, healthy non-smokers? It’s shocking but true. Exposure to the HPV-16 virus, the most common sexually transmitted infection, is now the leading cause of oral cancers in the U.S. There is little that can be done to stop this virus from spreading.

To that end, the Oral Cancer Foundation (OCF) is encouraging the dental community to get involved in Oral Cancer Awareness Month this April 2012 by offering free oral cancer screenings to the public in a national effort to raise awareness of this silent killer.

I was able to regroup because at that time my school debt was relatively low, as was the cost to start up a new dental office. Today, the stakes have risen dramatically. The majority of dental students graduate with six-figure debts, and the cost to build a new dental facility is much more, due to the complexity of the digital age. Today’s young dentists have less financial leeway than I did when it comes to making mistakes during a new office start-up. Yet for all the risks of starting a new office, training in how to do so is still ignored in dental schools.
