A recent federal survey found that about a quarter of adults have had their oral health examinations, but fewer than half are taking the tests to confirm that they are at least as safe as other people.
An examination of oral health by a doctor is an important step in protecting people from a wide variety of diseases, including cancer, diabetes and certain forms of cardiovascular disease, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians.
If you’ve had one, you can get one at your local health center.
Oral health exams aren’t always available in every state, though, so it’s important to find out which states offer them.
You may need to find your nearest office to get one, and you should also be wary of getting a test done outside your home.
You can’t get tests for free in the United States, but you can have them performed at an office in another state.

Most dental offices offer a free dental exam, which you can pay for in advance.
This includes a full exam, a full or partial exam, or both.
You’ll have to pay for any additional tests you want.
Dental exams usually take between 15 and 20 minutes, depending on the type of dental work you want done.
If you’re a beginner, you might get an oral exam that takes no more than 20 minutes.
