Services / Oral Cancer Screening

We’ll keep you safe by testing during check-up

While oral cancer is usually only a concern for patients who are over 50, there have been cases observed as young as in the teenage years. That’s why we perform standard tests during a regular check up to observe for signs of oral cancer. When oral cancer is caught early, treatment is much more effective than at a later stage in the process. We don’t share this information to scare you! We want to make sure all of our patients are always safe

Oral Cancer Screening

If we feel you may be at a higher risk due to family history of cancer or if we notice anything suspicious, we may ask you to undergo further testing to be able to come to a more conclusive diagnosis. Everyone should have an oral screening at some point, regardless of their age or lifestyle because early detection is the best way to save a life.


Here are some risk factors for oral cancer you should be aware of:

  • Previous family history of oral cancer
  • Over 40 years of age
  • Frequent alcohol / tobacco usage
  • Prior exposure to HPV
