Deadly – and strangely silent in our society – Oral Cancer is growing at an alarming rate – over 11% in 2007 in the United States alone.

The five-year mortality rate of Oral Cancer is higher than, cervical cancer and prostate cancer, and kills one person every hour of every day.

  • Why are we not speaking about it?
  • Why are we not screening for it at every visit?
  • Why are we not detecting it earlier – when the cure rates are 80-90 percent?

Because the signs and symptoms of oral cancer are often missed by the naked eye. We in Designer Smiles Dentistry, use the state of the art technology, Identafi® to screen Oral cancer. Identafi® with its Identafi® technology allows those on the front line of detection to do just that – identify biochemical and morphological changes in cells of the mouth, throat, tongue and tonsils.

Regular oral cancer screenings is a good preventive measure for most adult.
