When the average person thinks of cancer, oral cancer does not come to mind, yet it is one of the most treatable cancers in the body. Most oral cancers can be cured when they are discovered in the early stages. Unfortunately, most of them are undiagnosed until further along in development, and then most often they are less curable.

Around 20% of the general population receives oral cancer screening at their dental checkups. That leaves most of the population at risk for undetected problems. Thus, the mortality rate for oral cancers is much higher than it should be, given the curability rate of early detection.

Oral cancers do not present with pain or alarming appearances. Consequently, they can go unnoticed and undetected unless identified by a professional, like Dr. Wang. Most of these cancers are squamous cell carcinomas, and the average person has no idea what anomalies would indicate a problem. However, a simple oral cancer screening could save your life.

Identify Mouth Cancer Early

Screening for oral cancer takes only a few minutes. It is a painless procedure that Dr. Wang performs by examining the soft tissues in and around your mouth. Lips, tongue, cheeks and the neck are gently palpitated to determine if there are any issues developing. The VELscope® Vx Enhanced Oral Assessment System may be used to help Dr. Wang identify any soft tissue abnormalities.

Any lesions or red or white patches of tissue that do not heal within two weeks’ time could indicate a problem. If you notice any lumps or nodules in the soft tissues of your mouth or neck, you should be seen right away. Oral cancers will often look very similar to a canker sore.

Proper screening on a regular basis can prevent oral cancer from developing into a more serious problem. Engineered Smiles offers comprehensive oral care, including this life-saving screening. Contact us today to ensure that you have your oral cancer screening. Early detection of oral cancer is the key to your best chance of surviving it.

    Absolutely love this place, I’ve been coming here for the last two years. I didn’t have insurance when I first started, and they had a great payment plan that they were able to let me work with. I see Jennifer, and she is the absolute best! Dr. Wang and his entire staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will continue coming back to this location for years to come come!

    Like most people I don't particularly enjoy going to the dentist. The staff, hygienists, and Dr. Wang himself make this practice the best one I have ever gone to. I have been I patient for over a year now. I recently made the decision to get a filling from another dentist redone. That filling had me terrified because my last dentist didn't properly prep me. I told Dr. Wang and he listened very attentively and took the necessary steps to make sure I was properly numbed and fixed my filling and I didn't feel a thing! The shop itself is very clean and organized. It's and old Bank building and they cleverly used the value for the X-ray room. A big shout out to Jennifer for being great and very gentle with my cleanings. Also, the office manager Autumn, for always working with insurance for me and getting the financials as low as possible without me having to ask. I have recommended several people to this practice and all have had great experiences and continue to go back. This practice is absolutely worth checking out!

    Dr. Wang and his amazing technology create incredible results. I have had an implant and a crown and they are perfect replicas of my original teeth, only healthy. Also, the work was efficient and practically pain free!! He and his support staff are all kind and gentle. This practice is highly recommended both by me and by my husband!

    Dr Wang went above and beyond to make sure I thoroughly understood his proposed treatment plan for a front tooth implant. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me addressing all my questions and concerns and outlining his reasons for choosing a particular method or timeline. He was patient and specific. The following day he spent even more of his time demonstrating some of the incredible technology he would be using to ensure success of the procedure. He is incredibly smart and his engineering knowledge seems to be coming in handy!! Wonderful dentist with a broad range of talent!

    I’ve continued to use Dr. Wang as my dentist for several years and have always been more than happy with him. His staff is excellent and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, was friendly and did a great job. Dr Wang is always thorough and takes the time to answer all the questions I have - I trust him and continue to refer friends, family and coworkers to him and they have always been happy to say the least!

    Margo W.

    I could not get my regular dentist and Dr Wang popped up on Google as if by magic! I have a severe phobia about dentists but the glowing reviews about Dr Wang and his staff gave me courage to make that call after years of putting off the dentist. I was still anxious as I arrived for my appointment (I would not have gone but for the pain I was in) Dr. Wang was so personable cheerful and took his time explaining the procedure. He was very gentle. Even though I can't remember their names I can't say enough about his staff who displayed the same patience and encouragement. No one has paid me to do this review. It's all my true feelings. Dr Wang you have a patient for life in me
