Where: Mercy Dental Services
When: Jan, 01 From 2p.m. - 4p.m.
Fee: Free

Mercy Dental Services and Mercy Cancer Center are co-sponsoring free oral cancer screenings from 2 to 4 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 16 at Mercy Dental Services (located on the second floor of the Mercy Surgery Center/Cancer Center building). Oral cancer starts in the mouth (oral cavity), and oropharyngeal cancer develops in the throat.

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 devise that uses fluorescence visualization technology to enhance the contrast between normal and abnormal tissue.

Pre-registration is required. To schedule a free oral cancer screening, call Mercy Healthcare Connection at 330-489-1333 or 800-223-8662.
