Extra Point at New Orleans Magazine Top Docs Celebration

Dr. Moreau has skills, even more than we all knew. Pulling some of his old high school football tricks out of the proverbial bag, he was pretty impressive (as always) on the field at the New Orleans Magazine's Top Doctors/Dentists of New Orleans celebration at the Superdome tonight.
He was 2 for 3 on these kicks, moving back 10 yards each time. Pretty good, Dr. Jim. Garrett Hartley better look out! Oh, yeah, so...I DON"T get extra points for loading the video sideways. Small technical difficulty.

Oral Cancer Screenings Should Be Routine

With actor Michael Douglas's announcement this past week that he has stage 4 throat cancer, there's been a number of news reports about screening and prevention of mouth and oral cancers. One reporter noted that Douglas's wife, Catherine Zeta Jones, was "furious" because he had been to several physicians complaining of a sore throat and no one had been able to get to the correct diagnosis.

I couldn't help but wonder from this comment if Mr. Douglas had not been seeing a dentist regularly. Often times, the dental office is the first to detect signs of medical problems because generally speaking, people see their dentist on a more regular basis (twice a year) than a physician.

In fact, specifically regarding oral cancers, in our office we always do an oral cancer screening which includes a thorough visual screening for early changes in the soft tissues of the mouth, and the doctor palpates both inside and outside of the floor of the mouth and around the neck and jaw area. The medical reporter noted that if some of the physicians who'd seen Mr. Douglas had done a similar type of exam, his diagnosis might have come much earlier.

So, next time you think about skipping a "routine" dental appointment, remember that this visit could be an important step in arresting a serious dental or medical problem before it advances.
