Unfortunately, oral cancer is widespread across the United States. North Country Dental encourages our patients to schedule a routine oral cancer screening in Gorham or North Conway, New Hampshire. At our offices, our dentists and their team can help you catch signs of cancer early, before they start to develop. Come in today or call our practice to plan your next screening today.
Oral cancer includes cancers of the lips, tongue, floor of the mouth, cheeks, throat (pharynx), sinuses, and hard and soft palate.

In fact, oral cancer may be life threatening. At our office, we are dedicated to doing all we can to detect and treat oral cancers and other abnormalities at the earliest possible stage.
