VELscope Oral Cancer Screening in Coquitlam

Austin Station Dental has a screening device called the VELscope  which is the latest in technology for detecting oral diseases including cancer and pre-cancer.

It is safe, non-invasive and takes only a few minutes for the exam, which can be done during your regular dental checkup. The VELscope uses a harmless bright blue light that will cause healthy tissue in the mouth to fluoresce in different patterns than tissue that has disease or trauma.

Early detection for oral cancer is critical of course, with the statistics reflecting a much higher survival rate for early detections as well as less invasive treatment required at that stage.

The VELscope is approved by Health Canada and the World Health Organization and is used in 23 countries around the world.

We are happy to provide this service to new and existing patients. VELscope screening is also available at London Drugs in Coquitlam at 9855 Austin Ave. and at some locations in Vancouver – as specified in The Province, which also mentions that about 500 BC residents are diagnosed each year with oral cancer.

If you’d like to book a VELscope screening with your next appointment, please contact us.
