Oral Cancer Screening

Many patients are surprised at the large amount of surface area that we examine during an oral exam. At every hygiene visit, we examine all the tissues of your mouth including gums, cheeks, lips, tongue, and jaw. It is just as important to have regular soft tissue screenings as it is to have a professional dental cleaning.

Oral cancer can afflict anyone although tobacco users put themselves at a significantly higher risk than non-users. Chewing tobacco has up to 3000 different chemicals, including the same compounds used in pesticides and embalming fluid. Cellular changes below the surface aren’t always detectable until they’ve advanced to a critical stage.

Early detection and treatment of oral cancer can significantly increase your chances of a quick and complete recovery. The American Cancer Society reports that about 7,000 deaths result from oral cancer out of 30,000 cases diagnosed annually. If we suspect any unusual changes in your mouth tissue, we may suggest a biopsy and microscopic analysis by a qualified lab.

Many other non-cancerous changes can occur in your mouth’s tissue, from oral warts to autoimmune lesions. The dentist draws on their background in oral pathology to evaluate any abnormalities and determine if they should be monitored or removed.

We understand tobacco holds strong addictive powers over even the most health-conscious people. If you’re determined to quit, we want to support you in your efforts. Talk to your hygienist or dentist about the strategies and resources we have available so you can kick the habit.

Great & friendly staff that really pampers you. They treat you like a guest rather than like a transaction. What really sets them apart: technology (updated tools, giant screen for visuals, etc), check-in process, transparent doctors that clue you in about your dental health & procedures (11/10), the experience, and they have an air purifier everywhere!!!! I mean... not even my PCP has them. Wish we would've found them sooner!

I have not been to the dentist in a very long time and I was nervous to finally get a check up. I looked at the local business and this one caught my eye because of the great reviews. I scheduled a Sat appointment. I was able to sign in using a link and was seen right away. The staff was very nice and answered all my questions. I expressed to them I was nervous but they assured me there was nothing to worry about. My check up was quick and when it came down to understanding the charges for the procedures I had to undergo, the staff was very thorough and answered all my questions. I 100% would recommend this place. Dr. Andrews was very nice and I feel comfortable returning for my follow up visits and procedures.

Such a clean place! The parking is great! Brought in my oldest sister because she was in so much pain from her tooth. The staff was really friendly and compassionate. I had just got out a 12 hour shift from the hospital and the staff had coffee creamer and all coffee supplies readily available for their customers. I cannot wait to see if my insurance covers me so I can be a patient here as well! The staff here is amazing and the place seems very eager to give the best service to its patients.
