Oral Cancer Screening

Dr. Tevebaugh and her hygienists routinely perform a Head and Neck Evaluation to check for any abnormalities that may be of concern.  We also offer a Velscope exam as well. 

These images are taken from Velscope’s website. This new technology allows dental professionals to detect cancer by simply using a florescent light to see abnormalities in the tissue of the mouth. Often times oral cancer is undetectible by the naked eye which can lead to it not being found. We offer this service to patients regularly.
