What is Relay For Life?

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

North Country Dental participates in Relay For Life each year and has been proudly doing so for more than 15 years. Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature activity. It offers everyone in a community an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. Teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Relays are an overnight event, up to 24 hours in length.

Teams of people from all walks of life have fun while raising much-needed funds to fight cancer and raise awareness of cancer prevention and treatment.For more information about NCD’s Relay For Life Team, donating to the Team or participating, please call North Country Dental at 603-466-5015 Gorham or 603-733-5515 North Conway.

We need you!

Crafters are needed for our annual Craft Fair, which benefits Relay For Life.  All proceeds from the Craft Fair are donated to the American Cancer Society Relay For Life.  Register for our 8th Annual Craft Fair today!  Hurry, space is limited…registration deadline is November 1st, 2014!

Relay For Life is a life-changing event that brings together more than 3.5 million people to:

• Celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer. The strength of survivors inspires others to continue to fight.
• Remember loved ones lost to the disease. At Relay, people who have walked alongside people battling cancer can grieve and find healing.
• Fight Back. We Relay because we have been touched by cancer and desperately want to put an end to the disease.

There is not a required amount of money to raise in order to participate in Relay For Life.  The American Cancer Society’s recommendation is for each participant to set a personal goal to raise $100.  If you raise more, that’s even better.  If you do not raise $100, you are still welcome to participate.  We’re glad to have you.  The only requirement to participate in Relay For Life is the $10 registration/commitment fee (per person) that is due upon registration.   After that, anything you can raise through individual, team, or online fundraising is graciously accepted.

No matter who you are, there’s a place for you at Relay. To participate, form a team, or dedicate a luminaria at your local American Cancer Society Relay For Life, please call 1-800-ACS-2345 or visit http://www.cancer.org/.

Simple Dental Exam Can Save Your Life

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

A routine oral exam at your dentist’s office can make the difference in detecting early warning signs of cancer, yet many people don’t know this simple, painless, twenty-minute check up should be done once every year.

Approximately 30,000 new cases of oral cancer are diagnosed each year in the United States. According to the American Cancer Society, oral cancer occurs almost as frequently as leukemia and claims almost as many lives as melanoma cancer.

“It’s amazing how few people realize the importance of this exam,” said Allison White of North Country Dental in Gorham, New Hampshire. “We’ve saved several people’s lives by doing dental oral cancer examinations.”  Many people don’t even know the exam is taking place while the dentist or hygienist is doing it.  “They don’t understand what we’re really doing.  They just think we’re checking their teeth for cavities and such.  So if they don’t think they have cavities or some kind of actual problem or if they have dentures or caps, they tend to not schedule that once-a-year check up.  And that’s what gets them.”

Routine oral cancer exams are not being done in the medical field. “Doctors do general screenings and often the check up is not area-specific unless they observe something obvious, like exterior swelling or lumps. If it’s not visible to the naked eye, they’re not going to notice,” North Country Dental’s Dr. Paul Schoenbeck said. “Doctors assume your going to your dentist for oral cancer screenings. During a dental oral exam, the dentist moves the tongue, checks the glands in the mouth, even checks the patient’s head and neck.  A dentist feels for physical anomalies in an area that would be overlooked by a general physician.  Cancers can be detected before more obvious external indications arise by changes or abnormalities in the glands of the mouth, under the tongue, or in the tongue itself.”

Routine, careful examination of patients is appropriate and necessary. This can easily be achieved during a regular dental visit. The stage at which an oral cancer is diagnosed is critical to the course of the disease. When detected at its earliest stage, oral cancer is more easily treated and cured. When detected late, the overall five-year survival rate is about 50 percent.

Although North Country Dental is “doing a pretty good job of keeping patients informed”, Dr. Schoenbeck stresses that “not enough is done to spotlight the effectiveness or the importance of a dental oral exam in catching the first signs of cancer.  Dental oral exams are a great service. They deserve more attention.  The exam takes only twenty minutes and it can save your life.”
