Oral Cancer is not a rare disease and unfortunately it is on the rise. This year, approximately 53,000 will be diagnosed with oral cancer in the United States alone. Due to late stage discovery, one American dies every hour from oral cancer.
Legacy Dental is a provider of the ID For Life™ Program to promote early detection and public awareness of oral cancer in the office. Dr. Semerad offers enhanced oral cancer screenings using the OralID screening device. The OralID uses fluorescence to detect oral cancers in their earliest stages. Currently, 71% of oral cancers are found in late stages (stage III, IV), resulting in a 5-year survival rate of less than 50%. Finding these abnormalities in much earlier stages can increase the 5-year survival rate up to 80-90%.
