Did you know?

*The rate of oral cancer diagnosis in America has increased each year for more than a decade.

*Roughly 9,000 Americans die fromĀ  oral or oropharyngeal.

Why should I get screened?

In their early stages, many oral diseases are easy to miss with the naked eye. Fortunately, new technology has given dental professionals the opportunity to catch certain abnormalities early on. When discovered early, the 5 year survival rates for oral cancer victims increase dramatically from -57% to 83% and quality of life may improve.

An annual oral cancer screening can help your dentist or hygienist identify oral diseases early on and possibility save your life.

How does ViziLite PRO work?

A full mouth ViziLite PRO examination is fast and painless. In less than three minutes, your dental professional will examine your oral cavity under normal white light and then again, using ViziLite PRO.

ViziLite PRO uses blue light technology to stimulate the tissues inside your mouth. This blue light dramatically enhances your dental professional’s ability to see things that may not be visible with the naked eye.

I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
