At Forest Dental Center of Lynchburg we are committed to our patients oral health. In keeping with tradition, we are now implementing an advanced oral cancer screening in our oce at 1604 Graves Mill Road. The statistics are startling.

50,000 Americans will be diagnosed this year with oral cancer

According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, nearly 50,000 Americans will be diagnosed this year with oral cancer. Half of those will not survive more than 5 years after their diagnosis. In our oce alone we’ve had multiple cases in recent years. So now it’s time to take a stand against oral cancer. Early detection is critical to treatment. New technology and techniques are here to help us save lives.

New Oral Screening Technologies Without X-Rays

What will be dierent now? In addition to the basic oral cancer screening we have done in the past, we are now using fluorescent light technology to help identify areas of concern. It is painfree, tasteless and does not use xrays. Some dental insurance plans help with the expense of using this technology, however some also do not. We want to make this technology accessible to everyone. To defray the expense of this technology, it will cost you no more than $25/year. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask one of our team members.

Take A Stand: Save A Life

Let’s take a stand against oral cancer, let’s save someone’s life.
