Oral Cancer Screening

Oral Cancer Screening

At Plateau Village Dental Centre in Coquitlam we are happy to offer oral cancer screenings for patients using our VELscope (Visually Enhanced Lesion Scope). Oral Cancer is a serious disease that should be detected as early as possible so that we can treat it with proper treatment as soon as it is found. The VELscope is a new technology that allows for easier screenings of oral cancer, because it can show signs not visible to the naked eye.

Oral Cancer often is a result of lesions found in or on the throat, lips, mouth, and/or tongue. Common signs and symptoms include white or dark red patches in your mouth, a change in texture or lumps in your mouth, bleeding or numbness in the throat, or sores that don’t heal, and difficulty swallowing. If you have any of these symptoms, please consult with your us today.

If you are in need of an oral cancer screening, please contact us as soon as possible so that we can schedule an appointment for you at our Dental Centre in Coquitlam soon.

Love this office and Dr. Wan. She’s always done great work in my mouth and is always on time. I’m also happy to have my family see her because I know they’re in good hands. I would, and have, recommend(ed) her to all my friends.
