Dental Treatment for Cancer Patients

If you’re facing cancer, you have more than enough to think about. Your dental care prior to treatment shouldn’t be one of them. Our team of caring professionals know that you need healthy teeth so that you can move on to what’s important – healing your body.  Dr. Ruiz is the Vice President of the Allana Smiles Foundation, www.AllanaSmiles.org.   Allana Smiles is the first non-profit organization formed to connect the Dental and Oncological Communities for the benefit of cancer patients and their loved ones.

Dental Care Prior to Chemotherapy

It’s important that make sure your teeth and gums are free of infection prior to chemotherapy, and time is of the essence. Your treatment plan will consist only of what’s necessary to halt dental disease and restore compromised teeth. We’ll also provide you with the advice you need to prevent dental side effects associated with chemotherapy, and answer all of your questions. If you experience a dental problem during chemo, our highly-skilled professionals offer the compassionate treatment you need.

If you need a dental release prior to beginning chemotherapy, Drum Point Family and Implant Dentistry can help. Our goal is to help you get well and keep you smiling for years to come.

Call Drum Point Family and Implant Dentistry to set up your new patient appointment or to get a second opinion from one of our doctors. Dr. Ruiz and Dr. Fan offer compassionate, quality care for smiles of all ages. Patients in Brick, Toms River, Point Pleasant, Bayville, and surrounding communities will find us conveniently located and dedicated to delivering beautiful, healthy smiles.
