Oral Cancer Screening

Every time you are seen here for an exam, our hygienists will do an oral tissue exam also. Since detection of oral cancer in the early stages dramatically improves cure rates, if the hygienist sees anything out of the ordinary, Dr. Fey may suggest an OralCDX brush biopsy. This simple, minimally invasive procedure uses a brush to gather oral tissue cells that are then sent to a lab for evaluation. In about 10 days we have the results for you. The OralCDX brush biopsy is a simple, effective procedure for identifying pre-malignant and malignant lesions of the oral tissue.
