The broader understanding of your general and oral health facilitates a systematic workup. Advanced Diagnostic techniques and tools help to arrive at a definitive diagnosis, an effective treatment plan. For this reason, your dentist or your doctor may refer you to an Oral Medicine specialist. In many cases, the patient’s condition shows improved outcomes when seen in the early stages of symptoms and clinical presentation.
REASONS TO CONSULT AN ORAL MEDICINE SPECIALIST

Advanced training focuses on an intense interdisciplinary environment with multimodal diagnostic and management approaches.
