In conjunction with Oral Cancer Awareness month, the American Academy for Oral Systemic Health announced it teamed up with the International Dental Oncology Leaders (IDOL) to raise awareness of the importance of oral cancer screenings for those in the medical and dental professions.

In conjunction with Oral Cancer Awareness month, the American Academy for Oral Systemic Health announced it teamed up with the International Dental Oncology Leaders (IDOL) to raise awareness of the importance of oral cancer screenings for those in the medical and dental professions.

“It’s a collaborative effort," said Dr. Chris Kammer, past president and current board member of IDOL. "We’re very excited about the interest we’ve had. One of the biggest challenges is getting the word out about early diagnosis because it’s the only way to save lives. Every 24 hours someone dies from this dreadful disease, and the treatment is oftentimes worse than the disease diagnosis. So early intervention and getting practices on board–that’s everybody’s mission.

“It’s about getting the message to the dental practitioners: That you are the physicians of the mouth, and it’s standard-of-care to do a complete and advanced oral cancer screening, which takes only a couple of minutes.”

IDOL is an umbrella organization that brings together a number of foundations involved with oral cancer in an effort to provide education and awareness tools.

The American Academy for Oral Systemic Health is an organization of health care leaders and health professionals dedicated to the relationship of oral health and whole body health.
