According to a new study in the oral cancer field, more and more patients are asking for mouth cancer checkups in the dental offices.
As many as 88% of dental patients want to have their mouth checked for possible signs that indicate cancerous complications.
However, it has also been reported that only as little as 14% of dental patients say that their dentist has informed them about the symptoms and risks of oral cancer disease.
Even though 90% of the dentists check their patient’s mouth for possible oral cancer signs, very few of them actually discuss this particular issue with their patients directly.
