Actor Michael Douglas’s oral cancer PSA has been released and will begin appearing around the country. You can see a preview of it here on YouTube.
Dr. Gasper and his staff at Aesthetic Dentistry by Design in Colorado Springs perform an oral cancer screening at every hygiene appointment and also during comprehensive exams on every patient. We simply use a 2×2 gauze, mirror, adequate light and tongue blade to inspect the oral/pharyngeal area, and we will palpitate/massage the neck (thyroid) to check for any abnormal lumps.
Please call Aesthetic Dentistry by Design at 719-599-0700.
