Oral Health Education

Through this program, a Registered Dental Hygienist provides free on-site oral cancer screenings, oral health education, and information regarding access to dental health care to participants and caretakers in group homes, senior nutrition centers, and living centers in central Oklahoma. Screenings include visual, palpation, and when available, Identafi® filtered light examination.

Why are oral cancer screenings important?

Close to 43, 250 Americans will be diagnosed with oral or pharyngeal cancer this year. It will cause over 8,000 deaths, killing roughly 1 person per hour, 24 hours per day. Of those 43, 250 newly diagnosed individuals, only slightly more than half will be alive in 5 years. When found at early stages of development, oral cancers have an 80 to 90 % survival rate.
