Early Detection Is Key to Successful Outcomes

At River Oaks Dental Care, we firmly believe that your oral health is closely connected to your overall well-being. Dr. Parker incorporates oral cancer screenings into your routine visits because early detection is a pivotal component of our whole health approach. He’ll check your mouth for any indications of oral cancer, such as red or white patches, mouth sores, or lumps in your throat and neck. He will perform saliva testing as well.

While it may sound unnerving, this type of screening ensures you catch any potentially concerning health issues in advance. You will benefit from:

  • Early Detection – Regular oral cancer screenings catch abnormalities in their early stages, increasing your chance of successful treatment and full recovery.
  • Peace of Mind – Knowing that you’re being screened for oral cancer by a qualified dental professional can provide peace of mind and reduce anxiety about your oral health.
  • Personalized Treatment – Should any signs of oral cancer be detected, our team can provide personalized guidance and support, connecting you with appropriate specialists to ensure you receive the best care.
    Improved Outcomes – As with any screening, timely detection and intervention can significantly improve the outcomes of oral cancer treatment, reducing your risk for potential complications.
