Oral Cancer Screenings for Allen Saves Lives

This year alone, nearly 50,000 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer, and sadly, many will not survive the next five years because the disease wasn’t discovered until it was quite advanced. Early detection is essential to the successful treatment of oral cancer, which is why Dr. Fatima Robertson will perform one every time you come to our practice. It only takes a couple of minutes, but it could literally be the couple of minutes that saves your life.
