“I’d like to thank the partners who are involved in this screening, for their efforts to raise awareness of oral cancer and the risks involved,” said Freeholder Chairman Bruce H.

Oral cancer will be diagnosed in an estimated 50,000 Americans this year and can be fatal if gone undetected.

It can be detected early in its development through a simple, painless and quick screening. As with most cancers, early detection dramatically increases the survival rate. Oral cancer screenings are an effective means of finding cancer at its early, highly curable stages.

Dr. Krause is committed to help raise awareness of the importance of early detection of this devastating disease, by encouraging yearly oral cancer screenings as well as educating his patients on the risk factors and early signs and symptoms of oral cancer.

To make an appointment for a complimentary screening, contact the office of Dr. Krause at 908-272-3001.

For more information about oral cancer screening call the Union County Office of Health Management at 908-518-5620.
