Our Preventative Technologies

Cancer Screening

More than 50,000 Americans will get oral or throat cancer this year, according to the American Cancer Society. Fortunately, our dentists provide oral cancer screenings so cancer is detected in its early stages. Detecting oral cancer in its early stages gives you the best chance of survival.


Spectra is a noninvasive caries (cavities) detection aid that helps eliminate the guesswork in detecting and diagnosing tooth decay. It is the only caries detector that uses fluorescence technology to visualize and discover cavities earlier than traditional methods. Our dentists use Spectra to treat cavities earlier than ever before.

Carestream 12600 Camera

Our Grand Rapids dentists use the Carestream 12600 camera because they understand its value toward patient care. This intraoral camera looks much like an oversized pen, but is used to take detailed pictures inside your mouth. While our dentists are able to examine your mouth with a hand mirror, the Carestream 12600 camera lets us display pictures on a screen so you can also see what’s happening inside your mouth.
