Velscope Oral Cancer Screening

Creating beautiful smiles in Vancouver, WA for more than 30 years!


VELscope Oral Cancer Screening

The VELscope was developed to help dental professionals discover a wide variety of oral abnormalities that are invisible to the naked eye. This tool provides Dr. Cummings with an in-depth look at your mouth. The VELscope’s safe, blue light illuminates tissue and allows us to see oral precancer and cancer – along with other abnormalities. This makes it possible to catch potential oral health hazards much faster than was previously possible.

Why We Screen for Oral Cancer

Early diagnosis of oral cancer saves lives. The primary reason patients die from oral cancer is not due to it being difficult to treat – it’s due to late diagnosis. Oral cancer is more likely to affect men than women, and rates of HPV-related oral cancer is on the rise.
Fortunately, testing is now painless and easy. Getting your annual checkup and cancer screening is simple – and likely covered by your insurance.

Routine Cancer Screening

Once annually, as a patient of Salmon Creek Dental Center, you will receive the VELscope oral cancer screening as a part of your routine exam at 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 healthy.
