Oral Cancer Screening

Oral Cancer Screening

The best way to defend against oral cancer is to identify it in its early stages and promptly begin treatment. Our team is passionate about keeping our patients safe, and this is why we encourage everyone to participate in an annual oral cancer exam. Even if we don’t find anything during the exam, you will benefit from having the peace of mind that your smile is healthy. During the early stages of oral cancer, patients are typically asymptomatic, so it can be difficult for you to identify on your own.
