Oral Cancer Screening

Regular oral cancer screenings are the keys to early detection and treatment for a condition that can have serious, even fatal consequences. With early diagnosis and treatment of oral cancer, studies have indicated the chances of survival to be approximately 80 to 90 percent. Dr. Kong can perform these quick and painless oral cancer screenings as part of your regular oral exam here at our practice.

It’s very important to remember that early warning signs of oral cancer may not be noticeable to you in the early stages, which makes it even more critical to have these routine screenings. Dr. Kong recommends at least one per year for patients who do not consume alcohol or tobacco products, and at least two each year for those who do consume these products.
