    More About VELscope® Technology

    velscope

    Why is VELscope® so important? While the VELscope® system can help our office discover several types of abnormal tissue in the oral cavity, it is perhaps best known for its ability to assist in the discovery of oral cancer and precancer.

    A disease that can be tamed. By supplementing the conventional clinical oral cancer exam with the VELscope® system and its fluorescence visualization technology, we can see cancerous and precancerous lesions that might not be apparent to the naked eye. In fact, the VELscope® system is the first product cleared by the FDA and Health Canada.

    The world’s number one oral cancer screening device, a VELscope® exam is painless and provided as part of your routine dental examination by Valley Dental Center.
