DENTAL GROUP TO USE NEW ORAL CANCER SCREENING TECHNOLOGY AT VETERANS HEALTH AND WELLNESS FAIR THIS THURSDAY FREE OF CHARGE

Rivercrest Family Dental, PA will be conducting free oral cancer screenings at the veterans health and wellness fair this thursday at the Westside Community Center April 7th from 1100 – 130. Drs. Justin Barber and William T. Lee Jr. will be using an instrument called the VELscope to help identify abnormal oral tissues.

The VELscope has received attention from the media in the last year. The World Health Organization (WHO) recognized the VELscope system as one of eight products that addresses global health concerns. It was only one of eight products given this distinction by the WHO.

A recent study suggests that the VELscope can help surgeons reduce the recurrence rate for oral cancer following surgery.

Drs. Barber and Lee acquired the Velscope at the request of many patients after it’s demonstration on the Dr. Oz show entitled “A Trip to the Dentist May Save your Life” and “The Doctors” show last year.

From www.velscope.com :
The VELscope Vx is the most powerful tool available for assisting in the discovery of oral abnormalities. The VELscope’s distinctive blue-spectrum light causes the soft tissues of the mouth to naturally fluoresce. Healthy tissues fluoresce in distinctive patterns — patterns that are visibly disrupted by trauma or disease. Using the VELscope, a wide variety of oral abnormalities can be discovered — often before they’re visible to the unassisted eye.

Discovering soft tissue abnormalities is particularly important in the fight against oral cancer. Because the VELscope Vx assists in early detection, cancer can be caught before it has time to spread, potentially saving lives through less invasive, more effective treatment.

If you’d like more information about this topic, or to schedule an interview with Dr. Barber please call Diane Alvarez at 830/625-7611 or e-mail Diane at rivercrestdental@gmail.com www.rivercrestdental.com
