The first cooperative community event between the East Carolina University Dental program and COA was held at our Practice Wellness Fair this fall. ECU Dental performed oral cancer screenings on 77 patients between the ages of 18 and 65 at the Fair. Five people were identified with areas to be reevaluated. In addition, a large number of the COA population was taught important information about proper dental care including proper flossing technique.
