Newington Dentist Offers Early Detection Oral Cancer Screenings for Patients

East Cedar Dental promotes early detection cancer screening in Newington with the ID For Life™ Program for scheduled new & current patient appointments.

Dr. Aaron Farrokh takes a stand against oral cancer using OralID Fluorescence Technology

East Cedar Dental joined forces with Forward Science, the manufacturer of OralID, and became a provider of the ID For Life Program to promote early detection and public awareness of oral cancer in the office. Dr. Aaron Farrokh will be offering enhanced oral cancer screenings during scheduled appointments to new and current patients.

Oral Cancer is not a rare disease, and unfortunately it is on the rise. This year, approximately 53,000 will be diagnosed with oral cancer in the United States alone. Due to late stage discovery, one American dies every hour from oral cancer.

Dr. Aaron Farrokh uses an oral cancer screening device, OralID, in efforts to discover oral cancers in their earliest stages. Currently, 71% of oral cancers are found in late stages (stage III, IV), resulting in a 5-year survival rate of less than 50%. Finding these abnormalities in much earlier stages can increase the 5-year survival rate up to 80-90%. Those interested in receiving an oral cancer screening or learning more about our advanced technology implemented at East Cedar Dental, contact our office at (860) 667-0875 and ask about our OralID screenings, or visit our website at
