Our Six-Step Comprehensive Oral Exam Process
If you’re looking for a dentist who offers a truly comprehensive exam, you’re in the right place. As one of the best preventive dentists in Redmond, Dr. Daniel Bickel does things differently when it comes to oral exams. Here is what you can expect from our Redmond dentist.
1. Review And Update Medical Records
Dr. Bickel will begin by updating your current oral health history, including your list of medications, and discussing with you any other health problems you may be experiencing. Your overall health can affect your oral health and vice versa.
2. Oral Cancer Screening
Using a VELscope and other digital equipment, Dr. Bickel will look for lesions, tissue discoloration, and other potential symptoms of oral cancer. This step is especially important for patients over 40, or those who smoke or use tobacco in any form.
