While oral cancer is not common, its incidence has steadily increased among Americans*. As with many types of cancer, early detection is critical, which is why Wheatland Dental Care provides every new patient with an oral cancer screening.

We do this by visual examination of teeth and gums, and with the use of the latest screening technology, the VELscope Vx. The most powerful tool currently available for assisting in the discovery of oral abnormalities, the VELscope uses a special blue-spectrum light to help our trained staff differentiate between normal healthy tissue and malignant tissue.

The advanced training and keen awareness of all possible dental health concerns sets Wheatland Dental apart from other general dentistry practices, and we want to be your partner in preventive dental health.
