Oral pathology is related to any abnormalities affecting tissues inside your mouth. Ranging from inflammations to cysts, lesions and even oral cancer, Dr. Wallace is trained to investigate such abnormalities.

What can I expect through the course of my treatment?

Most often, your general dentist has referred you for an assessment. Treatment often will involve a consultation and investigation of your abnormality and a sample biopsy being taken and sent to a lab for analysis. Specimens sent to the lab can take up to three weeks for results, at which time there will typically be a follow-up consultation to review the results and discuss any additional steps.
