Oraquick Results at 12 weeks....WOOHOO?

Aug 15, 2006

Dr. Bob,

I have just taken the Oraquick test at the 12 week mark. It came back negative. However, unlike my previous time, the nurse asked me to swab my gums with the Oraquick stick. I did this while she was there directing me through this process. Is it possible that I did the test wrong enough to cause my test results to be in error?

If you're answer is no, then can I officially WOOHOO?



Response from Dr. Frascino


You performed the test correctly. It's official. You are WOO-HOO certified! Congrats!

Stay well.

Dr. Bob
