Oral Cancer Screening
We recommend yearly oral cancer screening for all patients. It is a quick, easy, and painless procedure that can be included with your regular dental cleanings. We strongly recommend this screening for all patients as early detection of oral cancers allows for better treatment options and outcomes.
Our cancer screening program includes a thorough examination of the head and neck, as well as all oral tissues. Our team will check your neck for swollen/hard lymph nodes. We also search for lumps/bumps, red/white patches or persistent sores in the oral tissues. Last, we use the VELscope cancer screening system to assess the oral tissues for signs of cancer.
