Dr. Harris, I know it is Oral Cancer Awareness Month-do you have a way to scan for oral cancer?

Yes, we do! We have some amazing technology in our office called the VELscope, which is a scanner specifically for detecting oral cancer.

The VELscope can be used in two minutes, with no discomfort, to detect oral mucosal abnormalities like oral cancer. This is especially important since the survival rate is about 83% for patients who were diagnosed in the early stages, versus patients who were diagnosed in the late stages where survival rates fall to around 32%.

Don’t forget, we are offering free VELscope screenings during the month of April. Call our office today art 877.9111  to schedule yours!
