Oral Cancer Screening

We know that oral cancer claims one life every hour in the United States- and the survival rate has hardly changed in the last 40 years. This disease is of great concern to our practice because oral cancer is very curable if discovered early.

That's why Babcock Dental Center has incorporated Velscope, a technologically advanced oral screening devise, to identify things that could lead to cancer at their earliest stages.

Velscope screens for oral lesions that may lead to cancer just as mammograms screen for breast cancer, PAP smears for cervical cancer, and PSA tests screen for prostate cancer.

Velscope is a phosphofluorescent light that helps the dentist or hygienist see what she may not otherwise see. The procedure is simple, painless and non-invasive. Our practice will be performing these screenings annually at no additional cost to the patient.
