At Brighten Dental, we care about your overall wellness, and we are happy to offer oral cancer screenings in Bowling Green, Kentucky, to help our patients to detect signs of cancer early on while it is still easily preventable.
What To Expect During Your Screening
Your oral cancer screening will consist of a physical and visual examination. During the physical exam, our dentist will feel your face and neck structures with consent. Dr. Chrislyn Fite will then visually inspect your mouth and throat tissues to look for any abnormalities.
The entire process should take as little as two minutes.
