DELRAY BEACH, Fla., April 1, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month and Spodak Dental Group is offering free oral cancer screenings to the public during the entire month.

According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, there will be more than 40,000 people who will be newly diagnosed with oral cancer this year. While smoking and tobacco use are still major risk factors, the fastest growing segment of oral cancer patients is young, healthy, nonsmoking individuals due to the connection to the HPV virus.

Dentists are often the first line of defense against oral cancer through the process of early discovery. The purpose of the screening is to look for signs of cancer or precancerous conditions in the mouth and to do so early when there is a better chance for a cure. The screening is painless and takes less than 10 minutes.

The free screenings will be held Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Appointments are required and you do not need to be a patient of the practice to receive a free screening.

"Our ultimate focus is the health of our patients and the community, and we are dedicated to leading the way in early detection," said Dr. Craig Spodak, owner of Spodak Dental Group. "Statistics show that most people will see a dentist this year but not a primary health care provider, making the work that our team of doctors and hygienists do that much more important and necessary."

Since 1976, the Spodak Dental Group has evolved to become South Florida's premier, comprehensive dental facility, and comprises a world-class association of dental professionals poised to provide full-service dental care second-to-none in both scope and skill. The Spodak Dental Group team includes General and Restorative Dentists, Endodontists, Periodontists, Prosthodontists, Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, Master Ceramic Artists and Anesthesiologists.
