VELScope VX Oral Cancer Screening

Get out of pain and save your tooth!

What is VelScope VX

VELScope VX is a remarkable system that helps Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Weinberg to see abnormalities in the mucosal tissues of the lips, mouth and upper throat area. The simple scan takes no more that 2 minutes and there is absolutely no discomfort. This high-tech instrument allows us to obtain extremely important information that has great impact on improving our assessments of your overall oral health.

The VELScope VX is a blue light instrument which stirs up the molecules deep within the layers of oral mucosal tissues. In turn, those molecules known as fluorophores, emit their own light, fluorescence, in shades of green, yellow, and red. The proprietary filter makes fluorescence visualization possible, by blocking reflected blue light, and by enhancing the contrast between normal and abnormal tissue. This provides an excellent evaluation of your over-all oral health.

John P., Actual Patient​

At the age of 6, Dr. Nguyen moved to Portland with her parents and two siblings from Vietnam. She has always been intrigued by esthetically pleasing imageries of people and places to the extent that she has considered pursuing a career in the fashion industry. However, instead of chasing images, Dr. Nguyen wanted to create and bring to life the notion of a beautiful smile.

Therefore, dentistry became her calling. Dr. Nguyen says “ A beautiful smile does not need to be perfect, it just has to look natural and feel good to the patient so that it will radiate from within”. Outside of dentistry, Dr. Nguyen loves to explore food and culture. She is fluent in English and Vietnamese which has given her great appreciation in the different ways people communicate.
