First Dentist in Atlanta to Offer Newest Oral Cancer Screenings

150 150 Atlanta Smiles and Wellness

According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, nearly 37,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancers in 2011. Ever since a young age, we have always been told the rules for a healthy mouth; floss, brush twice a day and see your dentist on a regular basis; however, as technology changes so do the rules for a healthy mouth. Atlanta Smiles and Wellness has been designing beautiful smiles since 1999 and to continue on its streak, has incorporated new-age technology.

Unfortunately, the death rate of oral cancers hasn’t improved much over the past few decades, mostly
due to late detection in its development. Oral cancers commonly appear on the lips or tongue and may
also occur in the cheek lining, floor of the mouth, gums and the roof of the mouth. However, the most
recent string of oral cancer, HPV16, is significantly contributing to the increasing rate of oral cancers and
is virtually invisible to the eye.

This is where Atlanta Smiles and Wellness comes in. Dina Giesler, DDS, MAGD, is the first dentist in
Atlanta to offer the newest technology for early detection with Oral DNA Lab. “This technology is vital
to keep our patients health and overall wellness at its best,” Giesler said. “Early detection is key.”

The procedure is painless and even included in your routine check-ups. The patient swishes with saline
solution for 30 seconds and expectorates (spits) into a cup; it’s that simple!

With the new technology available to screen cancers, Atlanta Smiles and Wellness takes pride in the
comfort factor for its patients.

Atlanta Smiles Foundation Reaching Out To Fellow Female Dentists

ATLANTA (Sept. 12) – Dr. Dina Giesler D.D.S., M.A.G.D. and a handful of specialty dentists have treated more than 75 women within the Atlanta Smiles Foundation. To ensure the growing number of women receive the treatment that is necessary, and happily offered, Giesler is reaching out to all women dentists in the metro-Atlanta area to lend a helping hand.

Giesler established the Atlanta Smiles Foundation back in 2006 to aide those who have suffered from domestic violence. “There is an unfortunate number of women who are expected to be silent and it is time that our community is aware,” Giesler acknowledged.

Its mission is to help survivors of domestic abuse reclaim their self-esteem, their sense of value and their lives by providing dental and facial reconstruction services, giving them a smile with which to face the world.

Currently, Giesler treats Foundation patients on her own with the help of Dr. Gordon Brady, D.D.S. and Dr. Mollie Winston, D.D.S., both oral surgeons. However, as the Foundation continues to expand, the number of applicants does too.

Nearly 250 letters have been sent to women dentists in the surrounding Atlanta area.  Within days responses were returned, eager to help.

If you would like to volunteer your time, services or provide a monetary donation, please visit www.atlantasmiles.org or contact us at atlantasmilesfoundation@gmail.com.
