Purple OralID©

(Houston, TX) (October 1, 2020) Forward Science, a privately held MedTech company founded in Stafford, Texas, was established with the mission of providing clinicians with the highest quality products, superior customer service and technology that changes lives. Forward Science’s flagship cancer screening device, OralID®, will now be made available in purple to honor National Dental Hygiene Month and the talented clinicians who screen their patients for oral cancer.

OralID® was developed with the vision to create a simpler, more efficient and more affordable oral cancer screening device. OralID® uses a proven, optically based fluorescence technology that aids in visualization of oral mucosal abnormalities. OralID® is distinct from other screening devices as it is the only FDA-cleared device that can be used without any rinses, dyes, sheathes or barriers, limiting upfront or patient use-based costs.

October is National Dental Hygiene Month and purple is the official color of dental hygienists, so Forward Science wanted to recognize all of those on the front line in the battle against oral cancer. “Forward Science has had the pleasure of working closely with an abundance of dental professionals since our inception, particularly in conjunction with OralID®. We also have been fortunate to hire and actively employ a number of dental hygienists,” says Forward Science CEO, Robert Whitman. “The hygienists who have joined us at Forward Science are some of our most valuable employees. Their clinical knowledge and enthusiasm for oral healthcare is unmatched. We are thrilled to launch the purple hygiene OralID® to honor all hygienists changing lives from early discovery of oral cancer.”

OralID® has been awarded “Product of the Year” five times, every year eligible, by the Dental Advisor. The flagship device was first given FDA clearance in 2013, and it has won many prestigious awards every year since. “Oral cancer has been on the rise for decades now, calling for us to make it a priority to enhance the standard of care for our patients,” says Forward Science Director of Training and Education and Registered Dental Hygienist, Ellen Myers. “Our profession has the opportunity to utilize OralID®’s advanced technology and truly save lives. I’m confident that if my next patient is my loved one, I’m providing them the best care possible because I’m screening them with OralID®

The purple OralID® is now available through Forward Science’s monthly oral wellness program, ID For Life. If you are interested in improving your practice through oral healthcare screenings, visit our website ForwardScience.com/OralID.
