As part of our comprehensive services at Dental Doctors of Somerset, we offer VELscope® oral cancer screenings. These screenings are a crucial component of your regular dental check-up and play a vital role in early detection and prevention of oral cancer.

VELscope oral cancer screenings are non-invasive and painless, adding minimal discomfort to your routine dental visit. More importantly, VELscope technology uses a special light to detect abnormalities in the soft tissues of your mouth, often invisible to the naked eye. This early detection allows for prompt intervention by our dentists if any suspicious lesions or growths are identified, greatly increasing the chances of successful treatment. Additionally, screenings provide peace of mind, as they help to rule out potential issues, making your dental visit a comprehensive health check-up.

When you come in for an oral cancer screening, you can expect a quick and simple process. After a brief discussion of your medical history with Dr. Michael Egan or Dr. Ana Fernandez, our dentists will shine the VELscope light into your mouth. You may see a fluorescent glow on the screen as the technology highlights any areas of concern. Rest assured, the procedure is painless and takes only a few minutes.

Regular VELscope screenings are a proactive step in safeguarding your oral health, and we recommend including them as part of your routine dental check-ups. Call 860-657-5522 to schedule your VELscope oral cancer screening in Glastonbury, Connecticut.
