What is OralDNA?

Drs. Glenn and Michelle Taylor of Taylor Dental Care describe the OralDNA laboratory services to diagnose several conditions through saliva samples. Patients provide a sample of their saliva, and it is mailed off to the OralDNA laboratories to be evaluated for several concerns, including:

  • HPV (human papillomavirus)
  • Periodontal disease
  • Periodontitis
  • Oral-systemic concerns
  • Bacterial detection
  • COVID-19 (coronavirus)
  • Inherited genetic risks

What does OralDNA testing show?

OralDNA allows patients to get the information they need about their current health state and information that may help the dentist diagnose conditions such as periodontal disease. We collect a saliva sample in our practice and send it to the OralDNA testing laboratories for further evaluation. Patients will receive a detailed report with the information found during their saliva testing and discuss the results with their dental provider.

Why should I consider OralDNA testing?

OralDNA testing allows patients to get a clearer picture and to understand their current oral health and wellness better. It can answer questions and provide them with the information the dentist needs to help bring the smile back to health. Because OralDNA has a variety of purposes, it is crucial to determine what testing should be done on the saliva sample to offer the answers to the questions patients—and dentists—might have.
