Oral cancer screening.

The VELscope is a non-invasive oral cancer-screening device. Early detection of oral cancer increases the survival rate to 80-90% therefore we place a high value on screening all of our adult patients. When not caught early the survival rate drops to 30%. The screening takes approximately 2 minutes. We shine a light into your mouth, which helps to highlight any abnormal cells without the use of any special dyes. Early detection saves lives.
