Risk Factors and Prevention Tips

During your screening, we also discuss lifestyle factors that can influence your risk of developing oral cancer, such as tobacco use, alcohol consumption, and dietary habits. We provide personalized advice on how to reduce your risk and maintain optimal oral health.


Who should get screened for oral cancer?

We recommend oral cancer screenings for all adults, particularly those over the age of 40, tobacco users, heavy drinkers, or anyone with a history of oral cancer. However, younger adults can benefit from screenings as well, as risk factors are changing.

What are the signs and symptoms of oral cancer?

Common signs of oral cancer include persistent sores or pain in the mouth that doesn’t heal, lumps or thick patches in the mouth, difficulty swallowing or chewing, and changes in voice. If you notice any of these symptoms, it’s important to get screened promptly.

How often should I be screened for oral cancer?

The frequency of screenings can vary based on your risk factors, but generally, an annual screening is recommended for most adults. If you have higher risk factors, more frequent screenings may be advised.

What happens if something abnormal is found during the screening?

If any abnormalities are detected during your screening, we will discuss the findings with you and may recommend further diagnostic tests or a consultation with a specialist for a more in-depth evaluation and possible biopsy.

Can oral cancer be prevented?

While not all cases of oral cancer can be prevented, you can significantly reduce your risk by avoiding tobacco, limiting alcohol consumption, eating a healthy diet, and maintaining good oral hygiene. Regular screenings also play a crucial role in catching it early.


Doctor Richardson is just the best! I had just traveled 13hrs in a car with a toothache. When I got home, I called his after hours line not expecting too much. He answered and met me at his office. He gave me a new crown while I waited! Amazing. I feel better. I would recommend him to anyone.
Very friendly and kind, very knowledgeable and speedy. Went in for a tooth extraction and was in and out in under an hour. Definitely recommend. The whole team did their work very swiftly and well organized.
Amazing staff, extremely friendly!!! A++ all the way around! I’ve never been a fan of going to the dentist, in fact I down right hated it! As soon as I walked in the door, the 2 lovely ladies at the front desk were super sweet and welcoming. Went through paper work quick and they got me back even quicker! As soon as I got back they were very nice and informative, both the dentist and assistant listened to me and my concerns. Did X-rays and found that I did not need a root canal as a previous dentist had tried to tell me. They were able to do the extractions and My mouth feels amazing even the day after! Extracted two teeth from my head and I still love em! Found my new dentist!!!!
Great office and staff. All four of our family members have seen Dr. Richardson now. We are long time patients of Dr. Utberg and the change has been seamless. My husband broke a tooth on a weekend and was called back after hours immediately and scheduled Monday morning to get it fixed. Very thorough with some updated procedures. Personal service like we have always had and honest, thoughtful care. Highly recommend!!!
My family have been patients at this dentist for five years, and my experience has consistently been top-notch. The staff is friendly and professional, creating a welcoming atmosphere. The dentist is thorough in explaining procedures, ensuring I'm comfortable throughout. The office is well-maintained, and appointments are efficiently managed. They are even great with my young boys! Highly recommend.
