Customer Question
I have a tiny...

I have a tiny red spot that is in the roof of my mouth that keeps coming and going. I saw my dentist he couldn’t see anything but it is very random sometimes there sometime not. It’s been happening for months now? It doesn’t hurt and isn’t an Ulser just a little red bump same colour as my mouth....

Doctor's Assistant: Have you noticed any recent swelling? Do you have any tooth pain?

No nothing like that it just keeps appearing almost every other week then goes again etc

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the dentist should know?

Can you give me an example I️ don’t think so ...

Hi, there! I’m sorry no one was available to get to your question yesterday. I’d be happy to chat with you today if you have time. Is the red bump present right now? If so, would you be able to take a photo of it for me to see what you’re talking about? Also, could you describe the location of it in your mouth? Is it near a particular tooth? Right on themidline of your mouth? Or off to the side?

Sincerely,

Dr. Lara

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
