Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is an abnormal group of cells in the mouth, including the gums, jawbone, lips, tongue, throat, and salivary glands. Each dental examination at SEDA Dental of Pompano Beach will include a screening for oral cancer to check for any symptoms, including inflammation, sores, lesions, and lumps. One of our skilled dentists will also feel your neck and jaw for abnormal growths. Should any areas of concern be discovered, a biopsy can be done or you may need care from a specialist.
"Had some dental work done at SEDA Dental last month and it was quite pleasant. I really enjoyed the atmosphere, everyone is incredibly nice and caring. If you are looking for great dentists, SEDA is the place."- S.R. / Google / Apr 12, 2019
"This place has been over the top kind, helpful, caring, and I can say even loving to my wife through all the work she has had done for her teeth! Even when she was in the hospital for an unrelated infection in her jaw, they were there to ease both our minds at such a scary time. The oral surgeon consult at the hospital said it was something to do with her teeth and recommended to cut all her teeth out! The hospital discharged her with a life threatening bacterial infection! We went back to SEDA and they consulted with like 5 other oral surgeons trying to figure this out. They recommended a great oral surgeon that we went to and he figured it out and solved the infection (yes, it ended up having nothing to do with her teeth, so thank God we did not listen to the hospital and went to Seda again to get their opinion! You all literally saved my wife's life!I sincerely, and lovingly thank you all for bringing care, love and compassion to what it means to be in business for your customers!UPDATE - I wanted to add specifically that Dr. Butenko has been and is such an inspiration to what "TRUE" customer service means! I have worked in sales & customer relations for the last 30+ years, and it is very unfortunate that so many places have forgotten that it is their customers, and their happiness, that is their absolute BEST form of advertisement....even better and more far-reaching that social media!Thank you Dr. Butenko for being there on weekend calls, your days off, and in a critically scary time for my wife and myself. Also, I could not make this complete without thanking Ashly (my wife calls her Smashly) and Fernanda, as well. My wife raves about both of you as well, and honestly everyone there! But to complete this with a little bit of a laugh for you Smashly....we LOVE you too! :)"- J.C. / Google / Aug 29, 2019
"From the moment my son and I walked into the office , we were warmly greeted by Fernanda. Dr. Butenko offered us treatment alternatives in a professional and no pressure manner. Federico did a great job cleaning my son's teeth! Highly recommended...we will be back!"- A.R. / Google / Aug 22, 2019

"I am highly pleased with the service I received at this office. Ashly, the patient coordinator, was great. It was easy making an appointment. I received a cleaning and they referred me to an oral surgeon to have my wisdom teeth extracted. I’m so thankful! Thank you for everything Seda Dental! Ms. Isaac"- B.L. / Google / Aug 16, 2019
Pompano Beach, FL residents of every age should get a dental exam every year. Some of the most common conditions, such as periodontal disease (the top reason for tooth loss), do not have signs you can see. If concerns are noticed early, you are more likely to have more treatment options.
The ADA (American Dental Association) suggests that children visit a dentist before they turn one. The SEDA Dental team can talk about common problems, including using pacifiers, teething, and baby bottle tooth decay. Our team at SEDA Dental of Pompano Beach can teach you ways to clean and care for your baby's oral health so they develop good habits early in life. Dental examinations are also crucial for older children as their teeth, gums, and jaw develop.
What To Expect
Your appointment will begin with an initial assessment of your teeth, gums, tongue, throat, the roof of your mouth, inside your cheeks, and other checkpoints. This includes checking for symptoms of oral cancer. A member of our team may take digital x-rays and check for abnormal gum tissue. We will evaluate your neck, head, and jaw, including the bite and temporomandibular joints (TMJ). Then, we will discuss any concerns we may have discovered and inform you of your treatment options. Our team will go over any other conditions you may have, prescriptions you are taking, and if they might affect your dental health by causing tooth decay or dry mouth. Lastly, we will check any restorations you have, such as bridges and dentures, to assess the wear and fit.
When to schedule your next appointment will be based on the results of your exam. If our dental team doesn't find any problems, then you can follow a home oral care routine with flossing and brushing every day, plus yearly dental examinations and twice-yearly professional cleanings at SEDA Dental of Pompano Beach. If a team member does find a concern that needs to be treated, procedures can be reviewed and planned.
Since a dental exam is so important to your dental health, it's usually covered by insurance. We can talk to your insurance company to understand your coverage and determine any personal expenses. If you don't have insurance, SEDA Dental of Pompano Beach accepts several payment methods, including medical financing. SEDA Dental works with you to help you afford excellent dental care.
