It is important to visit your dental professional on a regular basis for an oral cancer screening. In our office, oral cancer screenings are part of the periodic exam (the exam the dentist does at your cleaning appointment). Also, our Registered Dental Hygienist are trained to complete an oral cancer screening as well.
