Laser Cancer Screening
Dr. Rothenberg uses a VELscope® for detection of oral cancer in the earliest stages. This device emits a blue light to reveal abnormalities in the soft tissues of the mouth. Dr. Rothenberg conducts VELscope® scans during every regular exam, and we keep the digital images on file for comparison in years to come. If any changes develop, Dr. Rothenberg can conduct a further exam or recommend a biopsy. Oral cancer patients have a very positive prognosis if cancer is detected early, making regular analysis imperative to your health. If you are new to the area, or if you do not currently have an ongoing relationship with a dental practice, we encourage you to contact us today to begin undergoing biannual exams at our office.
