Let’s help prevent, detect, and treat oral cancer!💪

February 4th is World Cancer Day, which was first established on February 4th, 2000 in Paris, to raise awareness of cancer and encourage its prevention. At Seattle Dental Care, we would like to play our part in informing our patients and the public on how to recognize and prevent oral cancer.
