How a Pennsylvania dental practice is making patients aware of Oral Cancer Awareness Month by Meg Kaiser

It’s the middle of the month, so by now everyone should be aware that April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month. To call attention to this important cause, many dental offices are going above and beyond the “normal” oral cancer exam by discussing the exam more thoroughly with patients, offering oral cancer education, and making donations to oral cancer awareness causes.
One such practice is Weaver Reckner& Reinhart Dental Associates, with offices in Souderton and Harleysville, PA. The dental teams of the practice recently teamed up with Oral Cancer Cause (OCC) – founded in 2013 by Linda Miles and Robin Morrison in memory of Charlotte Estep, Linda Miles’ sister-in-law, and Mike Collins, Robin Morrison’s brother – to help bring oral cancer to the forefront of people’s minds. Continue article on Dentistry IQ website.

In the month of April, with the help of our wonderful patients, we raised $2160 for Oral Cancer Cause, a nonprofit that supports families who have a member with oral cancer. Our practice donated $1 for each dental exam and we asked our patients to contribute as well. Our sincere thanks to everyone who participated, and for helping us share the message of the benefits of early detection.

Oral Cancer Awareness, Raising Funds for Oral Cancer Cause

“We will be donating $1 for every exam we do in April to Oral Cancer Cause, which supports families who have a member with oral cancer. We will be asking our patients if they want to join us and match the $1, then they can sign an OralCancerCause.org card with their name to hang on the wall in each office. We will also be educating our patients about oral cancer and what can be done to prevent and catch it early,” says Tara Ayers, Office Administrator. Weaver Reckner Reinhart Dental Associates is a Platinum Partner of the Oral Cancer Cause (OCC). As an OCC partner, we support the not-for-profit organization’s mission to improve the quality of life for oral cancer patients

Oral cancer is one of the fastest growing cancers in the U.S. and will be diagnosed in more than 40,000 Americans this year alone. When caught early, the survival rate can be as high as 90 percent. Dentists are the first line of defense against oral cancer. That is why we advocate for and provide our patients with bi-annual screenings,” said Dr. R. Todd Weaver. “Being an OCC partner lets us lend our voice to raising national awareness about oral cancer, and educate patients on the life-saving potential of regular screenings.”

A Letter to Our Patients and Community on Our 20th Anniversary

From Dr. R. Todd Weaver, D.M.D., F.A.G.D. and Dr. John L. Reckner, D.M.D., F.A.G.D.

As we reflect on the past 20 years, we are aware of so much that has developed the Weaver, Reckner, and Reinhart dental practice. The community has shaped the practice by trusting us and supporting our dental treatment options. Our staff has shaped the practice in their tireless work to serve the patients and endless commitment to the doctors vision of quality dentistry. And our leadership has shaped the practice in a major way by holding the whole enterprise together. For this we are thankful and for this we will forever be grateful.   Those thoughts have recently left us astounded at how fast the years have passed since 1994 when we opened with two doctors and two staff. Now twenty years later as we enter 2014 with five doctors, three locations and close to 60 staff, we are aware of this passage of time and that a year is not as long as we once thought. But we have continued all these years with the same commitment to our patients. Our dentistry has continued to be sustained by our common vision and mission to the communities that we serve.

We have been driven these last 20 years by confidence in what we do, and we will continue into the future without the fears that grip so many businesses in our country and community. Our practice does not fear change, or growth, or succumb to the outside pressures that small businesses feel. We are confident in our quality, and desire rewarding relationships with our patients and staff that creates a positive atmosphere. The positive atmosphere that we strive for on a daily basis, makes for a happy and winning staff, and also healthy patients committed to their dental health care. Thanks to all who have made this practice so great and a profession that has given us both so much joy!

Sincerely,

R. Todd Weaver, D.M.D., F.A.G.D. and John L. Reckner, D.M.D., F.A.G.D.
