HOUSTON—While many other cancers are declining, oral cancer continues to rise, affecting more than 43,000 Americans in 2014 alone.

This year, the Academy of Laser Dentistry (ALD) and OralID are partnering to raise awareness and will offer free oral cancer screenings for the public in February at the ALD annual meeting in Palm Springs, California.

“The ALD is eager to improve public awareness of the importance of early detection by offering free oral cancer screenings during our meeting”, said Gail Siminovsky, executive director of the ALD.

Due to late stages of discovery, oral cancer kills one American every hour. Advanced screening technologies like OralID enable early discovery of oral cancer and other tissue abnormalities, thus increasing the survival rate of those diagnosed. 

In addition to free oral cancer screenings, the ALD will focus on oral cancer education during the annual meeting and throughout the rest of the year. Three hours are reserved for oral cancer education, which includes a course from an oral cancer survivor, and a session educating members on the growing trends of HPV and Oral Cancer, titled Sex, Drugs & Oral Cancer.
