Oral Cancer Screenings

  • Dr. McDowell requires that he evaluates his "active patient's" oral health at least once a year.
    Not only to evaluate the current health of your teeth, but your periodontal health, general health,
    and for any signs of oral cancer. We offer San Rafael oral cancer screenings for Marin County including San Anselmo, Larkspur, Kentfield, Novato, Ross, Greenbrae, and Fairfax CA.



  • The most common place to find oral cancer is on the sides and below the tongue.  Below are
    examples of 2 particular cases discovered by Dr McDowell. However, tissue changes can occur
    anywhere in the mouth and is thus one of several important reasons Dr McDowell makes sure to
    regularly evaluate his patients.
