To help prevent further cases, Boca Raton dentist Dr. Steven M. London is now using the innovative VELscope oral cancer screening system. The VELscope is a revolutionary tool in preventative dentistry, which utilizes a wireless, handheld scope that uses natural tissue fluorescence visualization to help dentists discover several types of abnormal tissue in the oral cavity.

Unlike most types of cancer, the number of new cases of oral cancer has not declined. Located usually in the tonsils and the base of the tongue, it is often associated with the sexually-transmitted papilloma virus or HPV.
