Velscope® oral cancer screening
VELscope® is a handheld scope that is used by dentists to help visualize oral tissue abnormalities, including cancer and pre-cancer. Unlike other adjunctive devices used for oral examinations, the VELscope® does not require any dyes or prolonged testing procedures. In fact, a VELscope® exam can be performed during a routine hygiene exam in about two minutes. As your general dental office in Alameda, we like to offer all of our patients the VELscope® oral cancer screenings as a complimentary service.
