At your regular visit to Gaslight Village Family Dentistry, we will conduct dental examinations to check for dental problems and diseases, including oral cancer. The earlier we recognize the signs and symptoms of oral cancer, the more effectively it can be treated; it is very important to screen for cancer regularly. Our skilled dentist, Dr. Ostrowski, and our knowledgeable dental team are trained to recognize the signs of oral cancer. Your risk of developing oral cancer may be increased if you use tobacco or alcohol. Be sure to visit our dental office in Grand Rapids, Michigan every six months for your routine dental cleanings and exams. If you have any questions about oral cancer risks or oral cancer screenings, please call our friendly dental team today. We are eager to help you improve your oral health!
