Much like other cancers, early detection of oral cancer is critical. If you have any questions about risk factors, please feel free to talk to our doctors or hygiene staff. If you have questions regarding insurance coverage, please contact or see the front desk staff. We recommend all our patients be screened with the OralID for early detection of oral cancer.
