Schedule an Oral Cancer Screening Today

dentist performs exam on patientLooking for a dentist to perform an oral cancer screening? At Burns Dentistry, our dentists are trained to perform a complete screening of your mouth, looking for anything out of the ordinary. These can be done quickly and can spot a potential problem that will save your life thanks to early detection.

If you have oral cancer in your family or you suspect you have oral cancer due to an unusual sign or symptom, contact our office today and make an appointment.

We always look for signs of oral cancer during regular check-ups. However, we can perform a more thorough examination if you are concerned about issues, such as:

  • Swelling, bumps, lumps, or any types of asymmetries in your mouth
  • White or rough patches
  • Sores that won’t heal
  • Changes in the position of your teeth

During our oral cancer screening exam, we’ll first ask that you remove any oral appliances, like dentures, you might have. We’ll then will evaluate your gums, tongue, soft tissue in your mouth, back of your throat, and palate. We will always be gentle, yet thorough during our oral cancer screening, so you feel comfortable.

If one of our dentists finds something abnormal, they will take a sample of it and send it to our in-house laboratory to conduct a biopsy. We will follow up with you as soon as possible with the results.

“I had the best experience at Burns dentistry. From the moment I walked in the receptionist greeted me by my name to when they called me back for my appointment. This was the first dental office that ever gave me a tour of there office which I thought was pretty neat. Office is really nice and clean. Dr. Holtan was very nice and friendly and loved how he took his time on explaining everything to me. So extremely grateful and highly recommend Burns Dentistry.”
