VELscope® Oral Cancer Screening

What is the VELscope® oral cancer screening?

Oral cancer is a potentially life-threatening disease and we aim to protect you from it at Luth & Heideman Center for Dental Care. Our VELscope oral cancer screenings are performed during your six-month examinations. We perform these examinations frequently because oral cancer is most successfully treated in its early stages. Using fluorescent technology, the VELscope can accurately detect oral abnormalities in the mouth. These abnormalities or lesions can be further tested to see if they are cancerous.

Do I need a VELscope oral cancer screening?

Dr. Luth and Dr. Heideman, our caring dentists, will perform an oral cancer screening using the VELscope device during your routine dental exams. This ensures that we detect any oral abnormalities as soon as possible. If needed, we will refer you to a specialist for further testing and care.

What are the risk factors for oral cancer?

Men are more likely than women to suffer from oral cancer, and men over the age of 50 are at the highest risk. The risk factors for oral cancer include:

  • A family history of cancer
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Smoking and smokeless tobacco use
  • Excessive sun exposure

Dr. Greg Heideman is literally my hero. He gave me life, with my smile. I was at another dentist office that he was filling in at for some reason. Thank heavens for that day. I made an appoitment with him, he told me what he could do for me. No looking back. I trusted that nan, and I can never say thank you enough. His staff, his level of excellence, is my reward. Thanks Doc!!!

Dr. Luth and Dr. Heideman and their staff are perhaps the most professional dentists with which I’ve come in contact in recent years. Their dental options, both cosmetic and general, were thorough and honest. I didn’t feel like I was being upsold or “convinced” to have expensive work done. Highly recommended.

My experience with Luth & Heideman has been great. This is my second visit, with my first being a consultation. The entire staff was very professional and curtious. By far the best dentist experience I have had, and would not hesitate to refer anyone here.

Today was my 2nd visit with Dr. Luth. I needed a lot of work done, but he and Ally, his assistant were so nice, patient, always asking if I was ok. When I needed to take a quick break they never hesitated to let me have a little rest. They have so much compassion at this office. Everyone here is so so nice. Plus, and most important, they were very very thorough. I definitely give it 5 out 5 stars!!!!!
