Oral Cancer Screenings at Shelby Township Dental Office

Hi my name is Nicki Goolsby, I’m a registered dental hygienist here at HPS Advanced Dental Care, located in Shelby Township, Michigan.

We offer a couple of tests here in our office. We understand the importance of early detection of oral cancer as well as promoting optimal health for all of our patients.  We have an HPV saliva test which will determine if you have the HPV oral strain of the virus and we understand that that is very heavily linked to oral cancers.  That is something that is very important for us to know as a provider because it allows us to closely monitor our patients for any abnormalities that might occur in the oral cavity and allow us to closely monitor you as a patient.

Another offering that we have here is a Velscope screen that the doctor does in conjunction with her complementary oral cancer screening that she does with her routine exam. This test allows her to see anything that we normally can’t see with the naked eye. It’s a very non-invasive exam as well.  So it allows us to see things that we normally can’t see, so that way we know to keep an eye on you as a patient, and it allows us to possibly refer you to an oral surgeon for further evaluation.
