April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month


This year for Oral Cancer Awareness Month, our office is partnering with the Oral Cancer Foundation for an Open House to offer complimentary oral cancer screenings on Wednesday, April 29th  from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  An appointment is required and can be secured by calling us at 212-689-0024. 

In addition, our office is performing the oral cancer screenings during the entire month of April at the reduced cost of $39 (regularly $78). Half of the proceeds from the oral cancer screenings for this month will be donated to The Oral Cancer Foundation!

Here are a few things to consider:

Oral cancer does not discriminate according to age, race or gender.  Early detection of oral cancer is most important because it provides a greater chance that treatment will be successful. Symptoms include non-healing sores, growths and patches on oral tissues, gums or the tongue. The professionals at our office use Velscope screenings to detect abnormal changes in the oral tissues, in order for them to be treated before they develop into something more serious.

We, the entire team of Herald Square Dental & The Denture Center feel strongly about prevention and have been offering oral cancer screenings for years. To prevent oral cancer, we suggests visiting a dentist every six months for a routine checkup that includes an oral cancer screening and adjunctive oral cancer screening with Velscope (quick,easy and pain free!). 

Take the time and  call us to reserve your appointment time for a complimentary oral cancer screening with Velscope on Wednesday 4/29.  Prevention is key!

We look forward to seeing you at the event,
