Washington: The mouth or oral cavity area is an excellent indicator of the whole body’s health, says a University of Maryland Dental School professor.Professor Li Mao insists surface tissues inside the cheek could be checked to detect tobacco-induced damage in the lungs.
“I feel that dentists should play a major role in prevention of cancer and Dr Mao is the leading oral cancer researcher in the country. He crosses the bridge between medicine and dentistry,” said University of Maryland Dental School Dean Christian S Stohler, DMD, DrMedDent, a leader in the movement to retool dental education.“Being a physician helps expand dental health care and he wants to change how patients are being treated because his background is in head and neck cancer,” Stohler added.The study is published in the journal Cancer Prevention Research.
