Oral cancer is diagnosed in 54,000 individuals per year and causes 13,500 deaths per year in the U.S. alone. Worldwide, there are over 450,000 cases being diagnosed each year, and it kills roughly 1 person per hour, 24 hours a day. Of the 54,000 individuals, only half will be alive in five years. More than 90% of oral cancers occur at over 40 years of age.

The VELscope® is able to detect soft tissue changes before the eye can see them, thereby allowing for quicker diagnosis and treatment of cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions.

Our office offers VELscope exams for oral cancer in Sterling, Virginia. These are fast, painless and non-invasive. Our licensed dental professionals, Dr. Roja Vemula and Dr. Minh Tran, and one of our dental hygienists use a magnified exam light that causes oral tissues to fluoresce. It’s a fast, easy way to peace of mind.
