We now know that oral cancer claims one life every hour in the U.S. --- more than the number of lives lost to skin cancer, cervical cancer or Hodgkin's disease, and it is of great concern to Dr Beatty.
Because early detection is the key to successful outcomes, this practice has incorporated ViziLite Plus , a technology cleared by the FDA, into the standard of care of the practice, to ensure that you receive the most comprehensive oral cancer screening possible.
ViziLite Plus is a simple, painless and non-invasive technology that improves the doctor's ability to visualize, mark, evaluate and monitor suspicious areas at their earliest stages, before they can progress to something far more serious, and potentially life-threatening. ViziLite Plus helps the doctor see what he/she may not see with the unaided eye.
On this visit, and at every annual check-up, we will be performing a ViziLite Plus examination. (a brochure is available for you at the front desk). With your permission, Dr. Beatty recommends performing a Vizilite enhanced oral cancer screening exam once a year.
