Oral Cancer Screening
Prevent Mouth Cancer With Your Timonium Dentist
At our practice we genuinely care about each of our patients and want them to enjoy lasting oral health and wellness. Oral cancer isn’t as talked about as some other cancers, but it is a serious and life-threatening condition that affects over thirty thousand Americans every year. When a patient is diagnosed with oral cancer, the earlier they’ve been diagnosed, the better chance they have at successful treatment. At our practice in Timonium, Dr. Haywood protects his patients from the more harmful effects of oral cancer by offering regular oral cancer screenings.
