At our holistic dental practice, we focus on whole body health. When performing an examination, we can perform an oral cancer exam to identify certain maxillofacial (related to jaw and face) and oral diseases or conditions. Early identification of any diseases, conditions, or problems is vital. The earlier a condition is treated, the more likely the outcome of treatment will be positive. Our professional team can identify a range of conditions and diseases, including:

  • Oral cancer
  • Mouth ulcers
  • Periodontal conditions
  • Bruxism
  • Toothache
  • Abscesses
  • Tongue diseases
  • Gingival recession
  • Fissured tongue
  • Geographic tongue
  • Glossitis (inflammation of the tongue)
  • Others

Oral Cancer Screenings

Early identification of the development of oral cancer can be lifesaving. As with other cancers, catching it in the early stages makes it far more possible to treat and resolve the disease before it metastasizes (when the cancer cells move to other areas of the body by travelling through the blood or lymph system, forming new tumors). Oral cancers can affect anyone, even those with a healthy lifestyle, but those who smoke or drink heavily are more likely to develop the disease.

Signs of Oral Cancer or Other Condition

The first sign of oral cancer is often a lump, spot, or bump in the soft tissues of the mouth. If you notice any changes in your mouth or gums, it is advised that you schedule an appointment as quickly as possible. In many cases, the condition is not cancer, but another condition that should be treated and resolved. Our oral cancer screenings can identify a range of conditions affecting the oral cavity or gums. Contact our Pasadena dentist if you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Due to the increased health concerns regarding COVID-19, we are now scheduling Virtual Consultations.

The virtual consultation can help answer questions, provide guidance and help ease your mind. This is an area recently approved by the American Dental Association. During this process you become a patient of our dental practice by filling out new patient forms. This process is to familiarize the doctor with your Medical and Dental history which will be reviewed before your virtual appointment. The insurance portion will be used for billing purposes.

Depending on your needs you can schedule for one of the two types of consultation


1. Limited Visual Consultation: Limited to one tooth or one area of concern. (10minutes)

2. General Visual Consultation: Answers to your questions to more than one area of concern. (20 minutes)

What we need from you prior to your Consultation time:

1. X-rays that you have from previous dentists up to five years old.

2. Pictures of the area taken by your smart phone from different angles. Take as many from different views as possible. Including pictures of your smile and bite. We have found using your flash on your phone and focusing will help.
