April raises awareness on facial protection, oral cancer screenings

The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons is encouraging dentists and other dental professionals to raise awareness on facial protection and oral cancer screenings this month.

April is National Facial Protection Month, founded by the AAOMS to promote the use of protective gear — such as mouth guards and helmets — to prevent dental facial injuries resulting from sports and recreational activities.
