The Two-Minute Exam That Could Save Your Life


The VELscope was developed to help dental professionals discover a wide variety of oral abnormalities, including oral precancer and cancer. By shining the VELscope's safe blue light in a patient's mouth, Dr. Cummings is able to distinguish between normal and abnormal tissue. That helps in the quest to find oral disease, even if it's invisible under ordinary light.


Once annually, as a patient of Salmon Creek Dental, you will receive this oral cancer screening as a part of your routine exam with no additional charge. In just two minutes, with no rinses, stains or discomfort, a VELscope examination lets Dr. Cummings improve his assessment of your overall oral health, making sure that your mouth is as healthy as it can possibly be!
