Breast Cancer

 

With breast cancer being the most common cancer among women worldwide1, most of us know someone who has battled the disease. But what many people don’t know is the toll that breast cancer treatment can take on a patient’s dental health, with painful and frustrating side effects that can have both short- and long-term impact.

In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, United Concordia Dental is providing a collection of oral health information designed specifically to help those affected by breast cancer.
