Did you know that a dental exam can save your life? Dentists are often the first ones to diagnose oral cancer. Oral cancer is one of the most dangerous cancers -- once diagnosed, slightly more than half of the patients will be alive in 5 years. One American dies every hour from oral cancer. These are alarming facts.
This is why we are strong believers in thorough oral cancer screenings. We invested in the VELscope Vx, the most powerful tool available for assisting in the discovery of oral abnormalities. Because the VELscope Vx assists in early detection, cancer can be caught before it has time to spread, potentially saving lives through less invasive, more effective treatment.
