Oral Cancer

Oral Cancer kills one person every hour of every day in the United States. At Baus Family Dentistry, we do not want you to become a part of this statistic! Oral cancer can be found in the mouth, on the lips, or in the throat, and can be highly curable if found early.


At our office we always strive to bring our patients the most up to date techniques that also improve health outcomes. VELscope is a hand held device that provides the dentists and patients with an easy and fast examination system for early detection of abnormal tissue. This is patented technology uses direct vision of the tissues through a fluorescent hand piece and makes abnormal tissues change to a darker color.

During the two-minute examination, the VELscope emits a safe blue light into your mouth and on your face. It is non-invasive and clinically proven to discover oral disease. There are no bad tasting rinses or stains required. VELscope is the most effective screening test at a minimal cost to the patient.
