Oral Cancer Initiative’s mission is to heighten awareness of the danger of oral cancer and save lives through screening events.
Our model is to act boldly and think big by offering large-scale free screening events to communities around the country through school districts, large corporations, and other organizations committed to the health of their communities.
The leadership of our distinguished Dental Advisory Board gives OCI the ability to disseminate the most up-to-date information to join the battle against oral cancer.
Our first goal is to increase the percentage of oral cancer examinations conducted by dentists and other medical professionals
Our second goal is to decrease the incidence of oral cancer through the combined efforts of our Dental Advisory Board, the Professional Dental Community, Nation-wide School Districts, and Fortune 500 Companies
Last but not least, our third goal is to educate and encourage the public to ask their dentist for oral cancer screenings and to do self-exams in-between visits
We will attain our goals through:
Offering free screenings to 100 school districts nationwide through 2021
Offering free screenings to corporations and organizations around the country.
Educating and informing the public to make sure they see their dentists regularly and ask for oral cancer screenings during every regular checkup
