We detected cancers with this simple screening last year and saved lives. Other suspicious areas were found not to be cancer.
Oral cancer is a serious medical and oral health problem, affecting thousands of people worldwide each year. In fact, close to 450,000 cases are diagnosed worldwide each year, and it is anticipated that close to 53,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year.
Our caring dentists can provide oral cancer screenings to check for cancer and other diseases using advanced VELscope® screening technology. VELscope oral cancer screenings help diagnose this condition in the earliest possible stages when it can be more easily treated. This simple screening device, which detects unseen problems, has helped Dr. Herskovits save lives. Oral cancer cannot be self-diagnosed, and you may not feel any symptoms until it is too late, so we recommend you receive a VELscope screening at least once a year. Please ask about an oral cancer screening at your next visit.
