We are concerned about your health. We include, at no additional expense, an enhanced oral cancer screening with the VELscope system.
Oral cancer is cancerous tissue that develops anywhere in the mouth and is actually part of a group of cancers called throat and neck cancers.
Risk Factors for Oral Cancer
Sometimes there is no explanation as to why one person gets oral cancer and another does not, however below you will find factors that significantly increase your risk of oral cancer:
Importance of Early Detection
Mouth cancers have a higher percentage of deaths per number of cases than breast cancer, melanoma and cervical cancer. Overall survival rate is 50%, but survival rates within stage 1 oral cancer are 90%, thus early detection is important. Make sure you visit us regularly for check ups, especially if you have any of the risk factors.
As soon as the boxes arrive, we will again be collecting toys for Toys For Tots! Look for the box at the front door.
We work diligently to make all your experiences with our office as pleasant and efficient as possible. Obviously, that includes your experience while in our office. It also includes how we communicate with you when you are not in our office. Phone calls, emails, texts, and our web and social media presence are all very important. We are constantly evaluating systems to improve our communications with our patients, while keeping the communications HIPAA compliant.
Ten years ago, we were early adopters of using a Patient Communication Management System. Now that these systems have become more widely utilized, we have some additional choices. We are excited to announce that we have been able to upgrade to a new Patient Communication Management System. Watch for some exciting enhancements coming soon. We begin testing Health History Updates on a tablet this week.
We are also excited to announce a new website is under development. Same address, www.amdds.com, but a new look and additional content. We think you will like it!
I look forward to hearing your comments.
Its fall and I have been doing some running. Not as fast as I would like, but having some great fun!
In September, my daughter Lisa organized the First Annual Brain Aneurysm Foundation 5K in Des Moines, IA. It was a fun event that raised over $3000.00 for Brain Aneurysm research. Lisa even made it on local television.
Lisa made the 10 O’Clock news
Next came the Chicago Marathon. I it ran with my son David and about 120 other members of the Crossroads Runners. Monies raised by the Crossroads Runners fund ministries that are helping to eradicate poverty in Chicago.

Then twenty-three of us went and ran the Dublin Marathon and some of us made the Dublin Marathon Home Page!
On our way to the start!

We were able to tour Ireland after the Marathon with a great group of people. I was encouraged to pose for this picture at the Cliffs of Mohr!
