Providing Excellence for Our Patients

With the Frederick Dental Group, you can count on us to deliver the highest quality dental care services possible. We are compassionate about our patients and providing quality care. We offer a variety of services, which might otherwise have to be outsourced, to save you time and money.

Oral Pathological Services

Oral Pathology is the specialty that identifies and treats diseases of the mouth and maxillofacial region. A traditional dentist would recommend one’s patient to a specialist to diagnose and address any unusual oral lesions or alterations that would mean more out of pocket money for the patient.

In our mission to always strive for excellence, our team of doctors are trained to pay close attention to your oral tissues, and diagnose, evaluate and treat any harmful lesions that may occur in and around your mouth. Diagnosis is completed through radiographic, microscopic, biochemical and other in office examinations. Lesions and changes in the tissue in and around your mouth are not always painful and, therefore, can be difficult to detect. When a possible dangerous lesion is caught and treated early enough, treatment can be relatively straightforward.

Oral Biopsy Services

Our oral pathologists provide biopsy services for dentists and offer their clinical diagnosis based on their findings. Some of the diseases that Oral pathologists diagnose include mouth and throat cancer, mumps, salivary gland disorders, ulcers, Odontogenic Infection, and others.

Some of the following may be signs that it’s time to come in for a check-up:

  • Difficulty swallowing or chewing
  • Constant sore throat
  • Sore throat that bleeds easily
  • Lumps or thickening of the oral wall
  • Discolored (red or white) patches inside the mouth

If you discover that you are experiencing something along these lines, it does not mean that you have cancer but you should make an appointment as soon as possible to have the issue evaluated and treated. The number is 301-624-1001 to call and schedule your consultation.
