Oral ID - Oral Cancer Screening in Dallas
Our pediatric dentists use an oral cancer screening device in their efforts to discover oral cancer in its earliest stages. Currently, up to 70% of oral cancers are found in late stages, resulting in a 5-year survival rate of less than 50%. OralID has the ability to “highlight” these abnormalities in much earlier stages before it is actually visible to the eye alone, in turn increasing the 5-year survival rate up to between 80% and 90%. To learn more about our advanced oral cancer screenings and set your appointment with Dr. Holly, Dr. Iwase or Dr. Shah, contact our office at 214-378-8868.
