Oral Cancer can be manageable if diagnosed early.  If the cancer becomes advanced it can be life threateneing.  Our dentists routinely examines every new patient as well as recall patients for any suspicious lesions.  They examine the tongue, cheeks, the internal opening to the throat and lymph nodes in the neck.  The examination(Cancer Screening) may feel slightly uncomfortable but painless and very valuable.  Our main concern is your health and well being.
