In The News:

Dentist's role goes beyond checking teeth: Health Center news.

(Reuters Health) - A dental check-up should include a thorough examination of the mouth for skin lesions, canker sores, ulcers and rashes--any of which could be indicative of a more widespread illness.

"Literally anything that can happen in your body can happen in your mouth. 

It's all made of the same stuff: blood, lymph, muscle and skin.  Both the patient and dentist have a responsibility to view the examination of the mouth as part of a broader picture of overall health, and not simply a check-up of an isolated region. 

Most insurance is accepted.
