Free oral cancer screenings in Owensboro

OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) - April is oral cancer awareness month and two Owensboro dentists are raising awareness by offering free care.

Doctors David Thompson and Vicki Frey will offer free oral cancer screenings to anyone on Thursday.

Dr. Frey says, "Early detection is key and the quick and painless screening is a good way to detect the disease in its early stages." She says people who smoke, use dip, and drink alcohol are more susceptible.

The free screenings are from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the office of Doctors Thompson and Frey, which is located at 3164 Alvey Park Drive East.

The screenings should only take about 10 minutes.

To schedule an appointment, call 270-683-0620.
