The Oral Cancer Initiative is not just an awareness campaign. OIC offers adults Free Screening Events around the country through school districts and large corporate offices.

Only 20% to 30% of the dentists in the U.S. do screenings with every exam. We hope our New Patient Referral Program will encourage dentists to join our initiative. We know our PSA announcements, and school events, that typically reach out to 25,000 parents per event, and corporate programs will save lives.  

There are millions of current and past tobacco users that we must screen. However, there are fast-growing additional threats. Scientists have proven that a strain of the HPV virus could also cause Oral Cancer and related diseases. Reaching these people is an equally important focus for OIC.

Oral Cancer kills one person an hour in the U.S., and it may be the gateway of twenty other cancers. Oral Cancer kills as many people as melanoma each year and is now more common than leukemia. The Oral Cancer Initiative is fighting to reverse these statistics.
