CHICAGO—Chicagoland Smile Group recently partnered with Forward Science, the manufacturer of OralID, to become a provider of the ID for Life program. This initiative is designed to promote early detection and public awareness of oral cancer. All Chicagoland dental offices will be offering enhanced oral cancer screenings using the OralID during scheduled appointments to new and current patients.

This year alone, approximately 53,000 will be diagnosed with oral cancer in the United States. Largely due to late stage discovery, one American dies from oral cancer every hour. Chicagoland Smile Group is one of many dental offices taking a stand against the oral cancer epidemic, providing education and screenings to their patients across the state of Illinois. 
“I feel that dental providers serve as the first line of defense and have the greatest opportunity to positively impact early detection of oral cancer,” says Chicagoland Smile Group’s director of hygiene, Kim Fasula. “That being said, I feel strongly that Chicagoland Smile Group play an active role in making a difference through oral cancer education, awareness, and screenings using advanced technology.  Forward Science has provided us with the tools to satisfy these goals and provide our patients with the highest level of care.”
