Raise Oral Cancer Awareness
An estimated 36,000 new cases of oral and related cancers are diagnosed annually. Because OMSs are unique within dentistry in their ability to diagnose and treat these conditions, AAOMS supports and encourages members to participate in the two oral cancer observances during April. The Oral Cancer Foundation supports Oral Cancer Awareness Month and encourages dental and medical professionals to conduct free oral cancer screenings nationwide throughout the month, and the Head and Neck Cancer Alliance has designated April 14-20, 2013 as Oral Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week (OHANCAW).
