One person dies every hour from oral cancer in the United States. Late detection of oral cancer is the primary reason that mortality rates are so dismal. As with most other cancers, age is the primary risk factor for oral cancer. Though tobacco use is a major predisposing risk factor, 25% of oral cancer victims have no lifestyle risk factors.
Oral Cancer Detection
Early detection is vital to the survival of any cancer. Oral cancer is no different.

I have been a patient of Dr. Horners since 1998. I can not imagine going any where else in town or having another Dentist work on my teeth. Dr. Horner And his staff are kind, patient, understanding and make you feel at ease....not to mention the excellent Dental care they provide. I recently had an issue that needed addressed asap. I called the office got in that morning and was able to get my problem fixed. Dr. Horner fit me in and took his time getting the problem resolved....his assistant that day was outstanding. I felt better knowing the problem was fixed and I could go about my day. Dr. Horner also took the time to discuss future options should I have any more problems. And did I mention the office and Dental areas are spotless. Vickie R- Patient since 1998,
