We provide care to patients with a range of complaints including, but not limited to:
- abnormal swellings involving the head and neck (jaw/oral region),
- oral sores or lumps and bumps inside the mouth,
- severe dry or burning mouth or other neurosensory disorders, and
- abnormal/pathological x-ray findings unrelated to common dental issues.
After a complete history and oral exam, we use imaging, perform tissue biopsies and other chairside diagnostics, and manage a wide range of patients with oral mucosal diseases, salivary gland disorders and other diseases affecting the jaws and oral structures. Our faculty are trained in the specialties of Oral Medicine or Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology.
