Dentists play an integral role in early detection and prevention of oral cancer. As dental students, we do not take it lightly that oral cancer is an issue that our communities face. Cancer treatment is extremely costly.

We are doing our part to raise awareness surrounding the importance early detection and diagnosis of oral cancer, and to contribute to funds available to victims of oral cancer.
