It is no secret that here in the Sunshine State, we have to be extra careful about cancer in all of its forms. As it happens, April is oral cancer awareness month, which makes it an even more appropriate time for us to push your next professional teeth cleaning and oral exam with Dr. Martin. Obviously, these important preventive visits can help us catch any emerging problems in your mouth before it’s too late for conservative measures. As actor and oral cancer survivor, Michael Douglas reminds us in the PSA video clip below, seeing a dentist who has the know-how to detect cancer and other oral health issues is a great way to ensure a happier ending for yourself. Please have a look, and then call Dr. Martin and Smiles of Punta Gorda today at 941-585-0424 to request your next appointment in Punta Gorda, FL.
