OralID™ Cancer Screening

OralID™ from Forward Science. Cancer Screening.  Shine Light, Save Lives.

At Healing Hands In-Home Dental Hygiene, we have proudly partnered with Forward Science to provide the best available care to patients. OralID™ from Forward Science uses technology with fluorescence blue light to help screen patients for oral cancer, pre-cancer, and other abnormal lesions. With this technology, we are able to help patients be aware of their oral health and help save lives.

The cancer screening process is simple. The device is a battery operated special flashlight that is used with enhancing eyewear to shine into the patient’s mouth and illuminate problem areas without needing rinses, or dyes.

Oral ID from Forward Science uses proven, optically based technology that allows a clinician to identify oral cancer, pre-cancer, and other abnormal lesions at an earlier stage, thus saving lives.
