At Rudolph Family Dentistry, we are committed to helping you keep your smile healthy for life. One way we work to help you stay in good health is by providing screenings for oral cancer. Drs. Ellen Rudolph Jarvis and William I. Rudolph are pleased to use the Identafi® oral cancer screening device to ensure that we detect any signs of oral cancer at the earliest possible stage. The Identafi uses multiple wavelengths of light, including white, violet, and amber, to excite the oral tissues in unique ways. This allows our dentists to monitor and detect any morphological changes that may signal oral cancer or abnormalities in the tissues. The Identafi helps us detect any oral abnormalities, which then enables us to help you receive the treatment you need.
We are happy to offer an oral cancer screening as part of your exam at our office. It is important to receive regular screenings for oral cancer in Columbus, Indiana, because if oral cancer is allowed to progress undetected and untreated, it becomes more difficult to treat. When identified in the early stages, however, oral cancer can often be successfully treated.
Identafi oral cancer exams are not covered by insurance; the price is $25.00. If you have any questions or would like to schedule your next visit to our office, please feel free to contact us today.
