Dentists focus on more than just teeth

When performing a dental exam, Drs. Aslani, Grover and MacDougall evaluate the structures and tissues of the mouth, face and neck. In fact, routine dental exams are an important tool for the early detection of certain oral and systemic diseases. If the dentist identifies a suspicious lesion, they can do a biopsy and have the sample tested to give you a diagnosis. If you have a concern, don’t hesitate to come in!
