Did you know that every hour of every day in the U.S. someone loses their life to oral cancer? When diagnosed early (before or at Stage 1) survival rate is greater than 90%. Even though March was oral cancer detection month, we at Remmers Dental Group are always diligent about our oral exams and use an adjunctive instrument called the Velscope. The Velscope is a revolutionary and painless method of screening for oral cancer. The Velscope has proven to detect cancerous lesions that cannot be detected with the naked eye and is used regularly at your annual exam at no charge.
