Did you know that mouth cancer is one of the fastest-growing cancers? The truth is, every day, mouth cancer is diagnosed in about 100 individuals. That means that thousands of people in the United States will be newly diagnosed with oral cancer this year alone. The earlier we detect the disease, the better the odds for successful treatment. That’s why we perform oral cancer screenings at every visit, checking your mouth for any suspicious-looking swelling, bumps, or sores. We also use advanced VELscope technology to supplement our visual and manual screening. This non-invasive, handheld device emits blue light to expose abnormalities on your tongue and in your mouth that cannot be seen or felt. A VELscope screening takes less than two minutes, but it could save your life!
I want to thank you for taking the time to meet with me about my dental concerns. After sitting with you and discussing your philosophy, I was so impressed with your holisitc approach, level head and your overall approach to your work. You are VERY easy to talk to and I felt comfortable talking openly with you about my reasoning. Thank you again for all your time and energy.
