Oral Cancer Screenings

At Evans Family Dental you will receive an oral cancer screening at every new patient exam and cleaning/checkup (re-care) exam.

Early detection of potentially cancerous tumors is critical. This exam will include evaluation of the lips, gums, inside cheeks, hard and soft palate, back of the mouth (as much as can be visualized), tongue, underside of the chin and lower jaw, and the exterior neck and throat.

It is very important to let Dr. Evans know immediately if you notice any changes in and around your mouth, head, or neck including lumps, bumps, colored lesions (red, white, or blue-purple), and ulcers that do not heal with in 10-14 days. Please call us immediately with any of these concerns.
