Patient Health Findings
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!"
