Cancer affects us all. It is estimated that one in two people born after 1960 will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetime*. While these statistics are frightening, more and more people diagnosed with cancer are surviving and go on to live healthy, full lives.
At Westbourne Grove Dental, we screen all of our patients for signs or symptoms of oral cancer and are proud to be part of the fight against this disease.
