Oral Cancer Screening

Bentleigh Dental Care uses a screening device that enables the detection of oral cancer indications readily missed by the naked eye. Oral cancer can develop anywhere in your mouth—the base or roof of the mouth, tongue, throat, tonsils, lining of the cheeks, gums or lips. With early stage detection and treatment, the survival rate is 90%. Every Bentleigh patient receives this screening at the initial appointment and annually thereafter.
