DENTAL SERVICES OFFERED

 This is a General  Dentistry practice providing the following Dental Treatment Services:



  • Head and Neck Screening Examination by Palpation Techniques: This is a Special Screening Exam you may have never experienced in the dental arena.  By massaging and palpating strategic areas of the head and neck in the dental chair, you can check for swollen glands (often an early sign of infection or tumor activity in the mouth or head area), Sinus problems or inflammation, and you can do a preliminary screening for Salivary Gland issues such as inflammation or tumor activitity, with a simple palpation technique.  In this practice, we have been enabled to make the preliminary diagnosis of Parotid Salivary Gland Disease, which may have saved the life of our patient with a Malignant Tumor of the gland, simply by using these screening techniques all the time.  You don't have to wait for Cancer Screening  Week to check yourself in alternative dimensions.
