Dr. Linderman, a second-generation dentist, updated the clinic’s oral cancer
screening services to encourage his patients to participate in early-detection
and prevention of the disease.
Oral cancer, often referred to as mouth
cancer, can occur anywhere in the
mouth, tongue, lips, inside the cheek,
gums, the roof or floor of the mouth,
tonsils, or in salivary glands.
The objective of oral cancer screening is to identify cancerous
cells or precancerous sores early and prevent the spread and
acceleration of cancerous cells.
Early detection of cancerous
cells significantly increases the
chances of successful removal
Factors such as tobacco use, excessive alcohol consumption, poor oral hygiene
practices, and hereditary conditions can all increase the likelihood that an
individual will experience oral cancer in their lifetime.
Dr Linderman encourages his patients to be
aware of common symptoms such as mouth
sores that do not heal, pain when
swallowing, red or white patched in the
mouth, jaw pain or stiffness, and a painful
tongue, among others.
According to the American Society of Clinical Oncology, 48,330
Americans received a diagnosis of oral cancer in 2016, 9,570 of
which ultimately resulted in death.
Oral cancer is more common is
those over forty and is more
prevalent in men than women.
Dr. Linderman graduated from the Indiana University School of Dentistry
in 1986 and practiced pediatric dentistry for 5 years before joining his
father’s dental practice.
