Oral Health month is quickly coming to an end. Your health partners at Suter Brook Dental Group want to equip you with the oral health education that will keep you smiling for years to come.

Healthy teeth and gums are a vital part of a healthy body, and maintaining a healthy body is essential to attaining the enhanced lifestyle you and your family deserve. We all know optimal health is what keeps you feeling vital and vibrant, allowing you to participate in the sports, hobbies, and social activities you can’t live without.

At Suter Brook Dental we are invested in your long-term wellness and thus, we offer preventative oral cancer exams, as well as periodontal treatments and solutions which enable you and your family to live your lives to the fullest.

It is often said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and in the case of oral cancer, this is especially true. Recent studies have shown that your dentist is often the first to detect early signs of oral cancer and other serious diseases.

Because oral cancer is on the rise, we offer oral cancer screenings as a part of your routine hygiene appointments. In the following public service announcement, famous actress and mother of Gwyneth Paltrow, Blythe Danner, speaks out about oral cancer.

Blythe Danner created this public service announcement to help share what her family has learned about the importance of taking every possible step to prevent oral cancer in its earliest stages.

Preventing oral cancer can be as simple as asking your dental expert for an oral cancer screening at your next appointment. It’s always worthwhile to take steps to protect your greatest asset – your family’s health. Contact us to book your oral cancer screening today!
