Boulder Oral Surgery & Dental Implants, with offices in Boulder and Longmont, is proud to partner with Always April, a national partnership of oral surgery practices across the country, as we strive to bring oral cancer awareness into a year-round discussion. We know the importance of early detection and we actively look for signs of oral cancer during patient visits, but we also want everyone in our community to know the lifesaving value of screenings and awareness.

Screening Partners

Thank you for your interest in Always April. Our free oral cancer screening event is over.

It is important to be aware of changes that happen in your mouth and continue routine dental visits and cleanings. If you notice any change in your oral health, please contact your oral health provider for an examination.
