VELscope Oral Cancer Screening

At your new patient exam & when indicated at following check-ups, your dentist will screen all oral soft tissues for signs of cancer using the VELscope system. The VELscope is the first adjunctive device cleared by the FDA and Health Canada to help clinicians detect cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions and other lesions that might not be apparent to the naked eye. The screening is a safe & comfortable procedure that takes mere minutes and simply involves shining a special fluorescent light to help illuminate potentially suspicious lesions.
