Approximately 30,000 Americans are diagnosed with oral cancer annually. Early detection is the key to determining outcomes. While tobacco use, age and previous oral cancer increases the risk factors for oral cancer, 25% of all oral cancers occur in people who do not smoke and have no other risk factors. Early detection and treatment is less invasive, and the outcome is far better. Dr. Michael Wilhite performs oral cancer screening on all adults over the age of 18 during each periodic exam every 6 months.
