Approximately 37,000 people will be newly diagnosed with oral cancer in the US this year. Doctors’ Sokol and Boettcher are sending the important message of early detection and prevention by offering a complimentary oral cancer screening service within their state of the art Lincolnshire dental office.
Dr. Sokol and Dr. Boettcher provide oral cancer screenings to their patients with every re care visit. Once a year, they use the the most advanced technology, VELscope, which uses a special light to find suspicious cells beneath the mouth’s surface. This light can detect problems areas BEFORE lesions surface. This VELscope oral cancer screening is non-invasive, painless, and takes less than 5 minutes.
Independent surveys of dental practices using the VELscope system indicate extremely high satisfaction among clinicians and patients alike. Clinicians, such as Dr. Sokol and Dr. Boettcher, report satisfaction levels of 90% and higher for the VELscope system’s ability to detect lesions that otherwise would have been missed, for ease of incorporation into the practice, and for patient comfort and convenience.
