Through oral pathology, Dr. Stephens can identity and manage diseases affecting your mouth and jaw areas, including cancer. Dr. Stephens will examine the inside of your mouth and lips to identify any changes that might indicate an issue, including sores that won’t heal, red patches, white patches, and a lump or thickening on the skin lining the inside of your mouth. If he finds something that looks suspicious, he may suggest a biopsy. Dr. Stephens will sit down with you to discuss your options if treatment is necessary.

I came to Dr. Nevins for a second opinion and was very impressed with the level of detail explaining the options and the pros/cons. They spent a lot of time trying to get to the right answer and to make sure I understood the issues.
