What Else Does Turner-Wood Dental Offer?

 

In addition to our staff improving upon their knowledge through Continuing Education Courses, we also provide you with the latest technology to aide in the individualized care we give.

 

ORAL CANCER SCREENINGS

Did you know?  Approximately 41,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral/throat cancer in 1 year.  The 5-year survival rate of those diagnosed is slightly more than 64%.  If cancer is treated early, treatment-related health problems are reduced.  (ADA...www.mouthhealthy.org)

We offer screenings to all of our patients as part of their continuing care checkups, as well as if they have any individual concerns at any time.  The screening includes a visual & tactile evaluation of your mouth, jaw, and neck.  We also utilize a screening device that uses fluorescense to aid in identifying oral abnormalities that the naked eye may not see.
