    Do I need a preposition in this sentence?

    My sentence sounds awkward.

    Re: Do I need a preposition in this sentence?

    Ok that was weird.

    Anyway, I'm not sure if this sentence is gramatically correct:

    Routine doctor checkups allow diseases to be detected early.

    Or this one:

    Routine doctor checkups detect diseases early.
