In order to prevent the devastating effects of oral cancer, Drs. Scott and Doug Petersen provide VELscope® oral cancer screenings. We use this advanced technology at Nephi Dental Clinic to scan your mouth in order to find tissues that may indicate the presence of this disease. When we find symptoms early on, then you can receive care while the cancer is still treatable. Please call our dentists today if you would like to learn more about our VELscope exams for oral cancer in Nephi, Utah.

Oral cancer is the silent killer. Its devastating effects can reach anyone. That is why when you come into our office, we will make sure to perform a professional, accurate, and non-invasive screening that will be able to detect oral cancer in its earliest stages.

To perform our screenings, we use the latest technology, with the VELscope cancer screener. The VELscope’s distinctive blue-spectrum light will allow us to notice any disruptions in the natural pattern of your mouth tissue. Using the VELscope, a wide variety of oral abnormalities can be discovered that are often non-visible to the unassisted eye. To learn more about how we can help you, and how our cancer screenings can be of service to you, please give us a call right away!
