Dr. Joel will then give you a comprehensive dental examination and oral cancer screening (including any necessary x-rays), explain your diagnosis, present you with treatment options, and recommend a solution to restore your oral health. Afterwards, Dr. Joel will discuss your examination and treatment plan with your restorative dentist.
