Oral Cancer Screen

Early diagnosis and treatment of oral cancer can save lives.  As a comprehensive dental practice, your overall health is our concern.  We conduct oral cancer screenings using Velscope, a system developed in partnership with the BC Cancer Agency.  Velscope is non-invasive and works by emitting a bright blue light that identifies problem areas of the oral tissues undetectable to the naked eye.

We also offer another equally painless method called a Brush Test to test common oral spots for unhealthy cells.  We use a small brush to collect a sample for computer-assisted laboratory analysis.  This test has been proven to detect precancerous spots which can be removed before they become cancerous.
