Oral Cancer Screening | Downtown Dental Associates, Toronto M5H 3M7



The best way to fight and beat cancer is through early detection via regular oral cancer screening, especially if you have a family history or are at high risk. Simply put, detecting oral abnormalities early on gives patients more treatment options and often better outcomes.


Downtown Dental Associates, at 181 University Ave., Employs the VELscope Vx Enhanced Oral Assessment System to check for early signs of oral mucosal abnormalities. VELscope Vx is cleared by the FDA, as well as approved by Health Canada and the World Health Organization.

In fact, the device is used the world over to detect signs of:


  • Viral, fungal and bacterial infections

  • Inflammation from various causes (such as, lichen planus & lichenoid reactions, or allergy to amalgam fillings)

  • Salivary gland tumors

  • Squamous papillomas

  • Throat, Tongue, Mouth Cancer and pre-cancer

  • Various oral mucosal conditions


Keep in mind that an abnormal results from an oral cancer screening does not necessary mean that cancer is present. Depending on the patient’s case, we may send the patient to a specialist to receive a biopsy to get confirmation.
