Oral Cancer Screenings in Kansas City

Oral cancer screenings are a part of every comprehensive dental examination.  Early detection is important in any cancer diagnosis, so examination of soft tissues of the mouth, tongue, and upper throat are necessary.  If suspicious areas are noted, we refer patients to the appropriate medical specialist. Risk factors include:  tobacco; alcohol use; habitual biting of cheeks, lip and tongue;  and poor fitting dental appliances.  Warning signs: sores or ulceration in the mouth that do not heal in a conventional time frame, unusual feelings in the boney structures of the upper and lower jaw, any unusual swelling or pain in the oral cavity.

Patients are saying

With my work demands I needed a dentist close to my office in downtown Kansas City.  Dr. Bruso gets me in and out with great results.  Very convenient location!


-Mike, Kansas City

Thank goodness for Dr. Bruso.  We have been to three dentists since moving to Kansas City.  We drive from Leawood to downtown Kansas City because my whole family loves him!


-Susan, Leawood

Crowns are a work of art and Dr. Bruso is an artist.

-Tom, Kansas City

I really appreciate the way Dr. Bruso takes his time when explaining things to me.  He is never rushed and you can tell that he really cares about his patients.  I also like the way he interacts with his staff.  There is definitely a mutual respect there.
