Novan Dental is Now Offering Enhanced Oral Cancer Screenings
Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Chu are taking a stand against oral cancer using OralID™ Fluorescence Technology

(Sacramento, CA) – (May 9, 2017) – Novan Dental joined forces with Forward Science, the manufacturer of OralID™, and have become providers of the ID For Life™ Program to promote early detection and public awareness of oral cancer in the office. Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Chu will be offering enhanced oral cancer screenings during scheduled appointments to new and current patients.

Oral Cancer is not a rare disease and unfortunately it is on the rise. This year, approximately 45,780 will be diagnosed with oral cancer in the United States alone. Due to late stage discovery, one American dies every hour from oral cancer.

Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Chu use an oral cancer screening device, OralID in efforts to discover oral cancers in their earliest stages. Currently, 63% of oral cancers are found in late stages (stage III, IV), resulting in a 5-year survival rate of less than 50%. Finding these abnormalities in much earlier stages can increase the 5-year survival rate up to 80-90%. Those interested in receiving an oral cancer screening or learning more about our advanced technology implemented at Novan Dental, please contact our office at 916-422-3991 and ask about our OralID screenings, or visit our website at info@novandental.com.
