One of the most dangerous aspects of oral cancer is the fact that the symptoms can be similar to other oral or even general health problems. If not addressed, it can cost you more than just your smile, it can cost you your life. In fact, more than 9,000 people die each year from this disease. Our prosthodontist will perform an oral cancer screening in Phoenix, Arizona, during your checkup at Valley Dental Group. But you should call 602-956-2260 for an appointment with Dr. George Eifler any time you notice something unusual with your smile.
