Wendy Miller, Director of Consumables Merchandising for Benco Dental shared a message of personal inspiration.
“What a great cause. Speaking as the spouse of a two-time oral cancer survivor, I am always happy to see a focus in this area.
The progress and care that I have seen made in dentistry over the years has made such a positive impact on my husband’s quality of life.
I am proud to be a member of the Benco Dental team. They are a leader in dentistry; always driving innovation to move dentistry forward and provide solutions for dentists, which ultimately improve outcomes for patients.”
“Mark the date on your calendar…it’s time to show the WORLD the impact that Dentistry can make in raising funds and awareness for this very important cause.
The OCC team and I will be spending the day LIVE with a whole host of great guests. Champions of the cause, oral cancer survivors and their families as well as some of dentistry’s best companies, leaders, consultants and associations.
We want to challenge all of you to SHARE this with everybody you know and tune in on April 26th to the Socialthon! It’s going to be a very special day in the history of Dentistry.”

“If we can save just one life, it’s all worth it,” says Robin Morrison co-founder of Oral Cancer Cause.
“Oral cancer patients and their families face many trials throughout treatments that can make it difficult to focus on recovery,” said Linda Miles, CSP, who co-founded OCC with Robin Morrison in memory of two family members who lost their battles with oral cancer.
“We envision the day of early oral cancer detection for all and a time when oral cancer patients can focus on recovery without the burden of monthly financial woes during treatment.”
Funds raised by OCC will be allocated:
- To provide financial help to patients and their families who face the challenges of oral cancer. Many times, the oral cancer patient undergoes extensive treatment and surgery rendering them unable to work, thereby creating a financial strain.
- To create public awareness about the incidence of oral cancer and the necessity of oral cancer exams for early diagnosis and successful treatment.
