Early detection and early treatment are key in successfully dealing with oral cancer. Our dentist, Dr. Noelle McKenney and her team offer screenings for oral cancer in Prescott, Arizona. Without a screening, oral cancer can go undetected until it becomes a significant health threat that can affect other parts of your body. A screening can find the problem when it is easier to treat.
