We Are Offering a Free Oral Cancer Screening to Help You

What is involved in cancer screening?

The assessment itself is completely non-invasive, which means there is no pain. The dentist will use the relevant examination method to facilitate the diagnosis and detection of anything that could potentially be abnormal. The examination and screening take only a few minutes. Also, the results of the screening are given immediately.

  • Visual Examination: The dentist will use their professional knowledge to help detect anything that is not normal and advise you on what your next steps should be.
  • Advanced Fluorescence Technology: At The Perfect Smile Studios, we use VELscope VX technology. It is a special device that allows the dentist to identify oral disease while treating it is still easy. It uses a blue light that stimulates natural fluorescence in oral tissues. This highlights diseases that may not be visible to the naked eye.
  • Chemical Dye Detection: We use an advanced disease detection dye called Vizilight Plus. This uses another type of technology for oral cancer screening.


  1. Does the Examination Hurt? The examination is completely non-invasive, so there is no pain involved. The dentist will simply visually examine the oral tissues with and/or without the technology.
  2. What Happens if the Dentist Observes Something Abnormal? If anything is detected that the dentist deems abnormal, you will be referred for a biopsy. This involves removing a small sample of the lesion and sent to laboratories for testing. Upon receiving the test results, the clinician will diagnose your condition. On most occasions, it should be non-cancerous. However, it allows you to get treatment earlier to get you back to health again. Your clinician will provide advice according to your diagnosis.
  3. How Does Oral Cancer Screening Help? Oral cancer screening and examination of your mouth allow for early detection. This means you are more likely to have a better and improved prognosis in the unlikely event of a cancer diagnosis.
  4. How Do I Get My Free Mouth Cancer Screening? We want to help prevent and fight cancer by detecting such pathology early. This will help to save lives. Help us to help you and book in for your screening today. Additionally, read some of our articles on preventative measures against oral cancer.
  5. How Do You Plan and Design My Treatment? The process starts with a FREE discovery consultation where we discuss your needs and requirements with a Computerised Photographic Assessment to help you understand the possibilities. We can assist you with potential options available to you at this stage. Depending on your requirements, we can customise, and tailor-make individual treatments plan to suit your needs and budgets. We also use Bite Analysis technology to ensure a long-lasting, comfortable, healthy final result.
