Schedule a cancer screening at oral health center

At CT Dental Implant Center, we’re serious about screening our patients for oral cancer. Like with most other cancers, early detection significantly increases a patient’s long-term survival rate.

We accept cancer screening referrals from doctors throughout the region. You’ll be in good hands when you’re with us! Our lead surgeon, Wladimir Gedeon, D.D.S., will review any suspicious symptoms and perform a biopsy. He’ll follow up with you about the results and, if necessary, refer you to the best facility for treatment.

Call 203-744-1240 to schedule an appointment if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Frequent hoarseness or sore throats
  • Mouth sores lasting longer than two weeks
  • Red or white patches in your mouth
  • Frequent bleeding from your mouth or throat
