We are more than aware that not everybody enjoys going to the dentist and that it can be a stressful experience for a lot of people. It is therefore necessary to make a joint effort between both patient and dentist.

Here are a few tips on how to prepare:
- Schedule your first appointment on a day when you know you will be most relaxed.
- Complete the new patient documents before coming to your appointment.
- Bring this with your dental insurance card and present it to our front desk.
- Always arrive early to your appointment.
- Prepare to spend at least 45 minutes with us on your first appointment. New cases of squamous cell carcinoma of the mouth (Oral Cancer) and pharynx are diagnosed every year and there are nearly 8,000 fatalities. As with all forms of cancer, early detection is the key. That’s why we make sure to conduct a thorough oral cancer examination on each of our patients.
- During your screening, the dentist will evaluate your teeth, gums, temporal mandibular joints (TMJs) and inspect your head and neck. Your neck, tongue, lips, gum tissue and cheeks will be palpated. Finally, the dentist will peer into your throat. Any lumps, bumps or changes will be noted and discussed with you.
- Changes in the mouth are fairly common, but in most instances, they are not indicative of oral cancer. Should we find any pathology, we will show you the area and discuss the best course of action. We may wait for a couple weeks to see if the area improves.
- Finally, we may refer you for a consultation for biopsy, where a larger piece of tissue is removed and sent to a pathology laboratory for analysis.
