Oral Cancer Screening in Bethesda, MD!

Oral Cancer Screening is a non-invasive and painless examination performed by our experienced dental professionals to detect any signs of oral cancer or precancerous conditions. It involves a visual inspection and palpation of the mouth, lips, gums, tongue, throat and surrounding tissues to identify any abnormal areas that may require further evaluation. If you notice a white patch or sore inside your mouth, contact our dentist in Bethesda, MD, to get the screening immediately.
