.We have made improvements to our office this year that you will notice on your next visit. First of all, we have added electronic openers to our entry doors to assist those with mobility issues. I hope you will find this to be a welcoming addition that will improve access for many of our patients. We also have improved the way patients can enjoy customized music, relaxation t.v.. regular t.v., and movies while in our office. Computers, digital x-rays, and monitors in all of our treatment rooms will also allow us to more easily communicate with you regarding your dental needs. We want to ensure that you are as comfortable and relaxed as possible while receiving care in our office
During the last year Dr. Cantwil detected thyroid disease on three paitents that has now been confirmed with their physicians. Some of these patients are currently being tested to see if the nodules that were detected are cancerous. We have identified several cases of oral squamous cell cancer recently and multiple skin cancers in the head and neck region as well. We have also referred several patients for irregular heart rythyms and congestive heart failure. We are dedicated to the overall well being of our patients by screening for many medical conditions but we can only help you if we see you. As we always say, "There is more to a dental checkup than saving your teeth, it may save your life!"
