Oral Cancer Screening With Every Exam

At Foxhall Dental Center, we prioritize your overall health as much as your smile. Oral cancer screening is a vital service we offer to every patient, especially during comprehensive consultations. Dr. Charles White is dedicated to early detection and prevention, ensuring every visit contributes not just to your oral health, but to your general wellbeing too.

Why Oral Cancer Screening Matters

Oral cancer can affect any part of the mouth or the surrounding areas, including the lips, tongue, cheeks, and throat. Early detection significantly increases the chances of successful treatment, making regular screenings an essential part of your dental care routine. At Foxhall Dental Center, located in the heart of Washington D.C., we incorporate advanced oral cancer screening into every comprehensive dental consult, reflecting Dr. White's commitment to your health.

The Screening Process

During your visit, Dr. White performs a thorough examination of your mouth and neck to check for signs of oral cancer. This non-invasive process involves:

  • Visual Inspection: Looking for any sores, irregular tissue changes, or other potential signs of oral cancer.
  • Physical Examination: Gently feeling the tissues in your mouth, cheeks, and areas around the jaw for lumps or abnormalities.
  • Discussion of Findings: If any concerns arise, Dr. White will discuss the next steps, including further diagnostic tests or referrals to specialists if necessary.

Our approach is gentle and respectful, ensuring you feel comfortable and informed throughout the screening process.

The Importance of Regular Screenings

Oral cancer can be asymptomatic in its early stages, making regular screenings crucial for early detection. Factors that may increase the risk of oral cancer include tobacco use, heavy alcohol consumption, a history of oral cancer, and exposure to HPV. Regardless of your risk level, regular screenings with Dr. White can be lifesaving.

  • Comprehensive Care: Oral cancer screenings are seamlessly integrated into your comprehensive dental consult, ensuring a holistic approach to your health.
  • Advanced Expertise: Dr. Charles White's extensive experience and use of the latest dental technologies mean you receive the highest standard of care.
  • Patient Education: We believe in empowering our patients with knowledge about their oral health, including the importance of oral cancer screenings and preventive practices.
