  • Celebrate Oral Health Month with a FREE Oral Cancer Screening

April is Oral Health Month and to celebrate – and  encourage – great oral health care, members of the  123Dentist.com Community Dentist Network across the Lower Mainland are offering a FREE  VELscope Oral Cancer Screening on April 26, 2012.

The VELscope system is a laser device that was  invented by the BC Cancer Agency as a tool to fight  Oral Cancer through early detection. Oral Cancer is  a potentially deadly disease and early detection  and early treatment are key in the fight against Oral Cancer.

The VELscope oral cancer scanner works by using fluorescent light technology to help detect signs of cancer and precancer that are not visible to the naked eye. Quick and painless, an oral cancer screening often takes just 2 to 3 minutes.

Consider this: over 3,400 new cases of oral cancer were found last year in Canada  alone.

Take just 5 minutes out of your day on April 26, 2012 to ensure you have a safer  Oral Health Month.
