During every six-month dental checkup, Dr. Hattaway provides an oral cancer screening to protect patients’ oral and overall health. Even if you don’t smoke or use other tobacco products, you’re still at risk for this type of cancer. In fact, as much as 30% of patients diagnosed with oral cancer annually do not engage in any high-risk behaviors associated with oral cancer. Regular screenings in our office ensure that patients receive diagnosis in the earliest stages when they have the optimal chance for a full recovery.
