All of our salivary diagnostic tests can be ordered from a single convenient oral rinse. Below are the types of tests that Dr. Phillips performs.

MyPerioPath®
The MyPerioPath® salivary diagnostic test identifies the type and concentration of specific perio-pathogenic bacteria that are known to cause periodontal disease. MyPerioPath® helps support the clinician with better risk assessment and personalized treatment options for more predictable outcomes.

Collecting a sample is quickly and easily administered chairside, and takes about a minute to complete. Here’s
the process:

Patient swishes a saline solution for 30 seconds
Patient expectorates into funneled collection tube
Funnel is removed, cap is secured to top of collection tube
Samples are sent via pre-paid FedEx® envelope to OralDNA® Labs for DNA-PCR analysis
E-mail notification is sent to clinician when electronic result report is available

MyPerioID®
The MyPerioID® test identifies individual genetic susceptibility to periodontal disease and enables the clinician to establish which patients are at increased risk for more severe periodontal infections due to an exaggerated immune response.

Collecting a sample is quickly and easily administered chairside, and takes about a minute to complete. Here’s the process:

Patient swishes a saline solution for 30 seconds

OraRisk® HPV
Human papillomavirus (HPV) is one of the most common virus groups in the world. According to the Centers for Disease Control, at least 20 million people in the United States are infected with HPV and there are approximately 6 million new cases
each year.

Oral HPV is a manifestation of the HPV virus in the mouth, and is primarily found in the oropharyngeal complex. Specific types of oral HPV are now considered to be separate and serious risk factor for developing oral cancers. Early detection and identification of the presence or absence of oral HPV is important, as early oral HPV infections do not typically cause any clinical signs or symptoms.

The OraRisk® HPV test is a non-invasive, easy-to-use screening tool to identify the type(s) of oral HPV, a mucosal viral infection that could potentially lead to oral cancer. OraRisk® HPV enables the clinician to establish increased risk for oral cancer and determine appropriate referral and monitoring conditions.

Collecting a sample is quickly and easily administered chairside, and takes about a minute to complete. Here’s the process:
