Oral Pathology in Northern Virginia

Like other areas of the body, the soft tissues and bones of the mid-face, lower jaw and mouth may be the site of development of cysts, benign and malignant tumors, and other pathologic processes.

Drs. LaBriola and Zadeh can provide biopsy, definitive treatment and counseling relating to these conditions. A consultation appointment will be scheduled, at which we will conduct an examination and take any necessary X-rays before any surgery is scheduled. Most biopsies are done in the office, but any extensive surgical procedures may be scheduled at a local hospital, usually on an outpatient basis. Biopsies are generally sent to a qualified oral pathologist for microscopic examination.

What is oral pathology?

Oral pathology is the treatment of cysts and tumors in the mouth, lower jaw or face.

What’s involved with getting a biopsy?

A biopsy involves the removal or a piece of the suspicious tissue, which is then sent to a laboratory for a microscopic examination that will accurately diagnose the problem.

Oral Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment

Our oral surgeons are trained to diagnose and treat oral disease, including oral cancer. More than 48,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer each year, according to the Oral Cancer Foundation. Early detection saves lives.

Our oral surgeons can assess abnormal growths in the mouth, including lumps or thickenings, and perform biopsies to determine the cause. The first step is to get an oral cancer screening at our offices in Annandale, Manassas, and Woodbridge.

So friendly, professional and most of all, very welcoming with the very first warm smile of the office team once I stepped in the clinic! I loved Dr. Julia Jackson’s sense of humor, relieving my nurviousness, not mentioning her and her team’s outstanding listening to patient’s needs, and thorough understanding and support.

Julia Jackson and her staff showed me great kindness. Had an emergency procedure that was taken care of the same day. Dr. Jackson personally called to check on me that same night. It’s comforting to know that there are still professionals that care about their patients. I highly recommend her if you’re in need of her services.

Everyone at this office was so nice and accommodating. I got sent here from the Manassas office. Dr. Jackson was very detailed in going over the procedure and what to expect. Overall a great experience (well as great as getting your wisdom teeth removed can be)

The service was very professional and the doctor was very attentive. The dental assistants made me feel very comfortable because I was very nervous. The wait time was short and the procedure was short as well. They talked me through all the steps before and after my wisdom teeth removal.

Aside from not remembering much when I got my wisdom teeth pulled (which I completely appreciate), my experience was fantastic. Everything was very quick and thorough. The staff was very professional and provided great customer service. I felt like they were taking care of me.
