ORAL CANCER EXAMS: Early Detection

Did You Know?

Early Detection Is Vital

Dr. Donald and Dr Alissa Roman can find oral cancer while it is still treatable by performing a compassionate and thorough oral cancer exam.

While oral cancer can usually be successfully treated when detected early, most cases of oral cancer are not detected until they have progressed into a more serious, advanced stage that is much more difficult to treat.sign saying to reduce your risk and spot the early signs

In fact, oral cancer may be life-threatening if not detected early.

At Roman Dental Arts, we are dedicated to doing all we can to detect and treat oral cancers and other abnormalities at the earliest possible stage. During your routine dental cleanings and exams at our office, our compassionate and thorough team will perform an oral cancer screening to check for the signs of oral cancer.
