Speaker: Not Available | Where: Mercy Medical Center, Mercy Dental Services, 1320 Mercy Drive NW, Canton, Ohio 44708 | Fee: Free

Mercy Cancer Center is offering free oral cancer screenings to promote prevention and early detection of the disease.

Oral cancer screenings will be held from 10:00 a.m. until 12 noon on Friday, December 13th inside Mercy Dental Services (on the second floor of the Surgery Center/Cancer Center building). Mercy dental professionals will perform the exam and may use the VELscope system to help visualize abnormalities in high-risk patients. VELscope is an FDA approved non-invasive, hand-held device that uses fluorescence visualization technology to enhance the contrast between normal and abnormal tissue.

Oral cancer screenings are free, but registration is required. To register, call Mercy’s Healthcare Connection at 330-489-1333 or 800-223-8662.
