Irvine, CA (PRWEB) March 19, 2014
Smile Brands Inc., one of the nation’s leading providers of business support services to dental groups in the United States, announced today that Monarch Dental® offices across Oklahoma will offer free oral cancer screenings to new and existing patients throughout April in honor of Oral Cancer Awareness Month.
According to the Oral Cancer Foundation (“OCF”), oral cancer kills one American every hour and is one of the only forms of cancers that continue to see rates increase year over year due to lack of early detection. OCF estimates that 43,250 cases of oral cancer will be diagnosed in the United States in 2014 alone.
To help promote early detection, Monarch Dental offices in Oklahoma are offering patients an opportunity to receive an oral cancer screening at no cost. New patients of Monarch Dental will receive a free limited exam, x-rays, and oral cancer screening1 and current patients will receive a no-cost oral cancer screening2, using a non-invasive oral screening device.
“Many organizations recognize April as Oral Cancer Awareness Month. We’re happy to support the effort to raise awareness with an offering that has the potential to save lives,” said Dr. Peek, Market Dental Director. “We believe that we can help improve the rate of early detection of oral cancer, which is crucial to this fight.”
The offer for a free oral cancer screening is available from April 1, 2014 through April 30, 2014 in all Oklahoma Monarch Dental offices. New patients who schedule a complimentary screening in April will also receive $100 off any future services redeemable through July 31, 20143. Patients are encouraged to contact their local Monarch Dental office for more information.
