Oral Cancer Screening

Screening for Oral Cancer and head and neck Cancer is done at every cleaning and exam appointment, generally at six month intervals. The screening is done to detect early signs of Cancer. During the screening process, we will be looking for any abnormal tissue areas and/or swollen Lymph Nodes. Most times when something out of the ordinary is found, there is a reasonable explanation. When a lesion is noted, photos may be taken and emailed to the oral surgeon and pathology department at UNC School of dentistry for interpretation.

  • Two thumbs up!

    It was so nice to see how Dr. Laura and her staff have made the lovely new office their own. Even after the many years I have been a patient, I am always impressed with how their warm, professional manner helps to make the procedures understandable and as pleasant as possible. Two thumbs up!

  • Very Professional and Relaxing

    I had a cavity and crown prep. The doctor and staff did a bang up job. Very professional and relaxing. Holding my tongue down as they stated could lift 600 lbs and my small mouth to work in they earned their money. However, they were great about it and worked diligently to get me through this.
