Online dental marketplace DentalPlans.com is urging people in the U.S. to get preventive dental care and oral cancer screenings.
The move comes during Oral Cancer Awareness Month, marked every April, the company said. DentalPlans.com cautions that early signs of oral cancer can be difficult to identify. Men are twice as likely as women to develop the disease, and those over 50 are at highest risk; smokers are six times more likely to develop oral cancer, according to the firm.
DentalPlans.com is a subsidiary of Henry Schein One.
