Mouth Cancer Awareness Day Wednesday 17th September
The team here at St Andrews Dental Care Hull take great pride in the dental work we undertake helping people smile with confidence. The appearance of a smile means a great deal to everyone and can play a huge part in ones wellbeing. Effective oral healthcare is important to us and covers many different aspects. Another important thing we care about is raising awareness of mouth cancer with our patients. Unfortunately it is predicted that around 60,000 people in the UK will be diagnosed with mouth cancer over the next decade, and we have found awareness of this disease is way too low.
Back in June 2004 the Mouth Cancer Foundation was formed by Dr Vinod K Joshi as a resource to help people with mouth, throat and other head and neck cancers. This amazing charity gives resources, information and enables contact with people in similar situations and has in our opinion become a tremendous resource that can help anyone facing a cancer of this type. Part of the trauma of finding out you have cancer is dealing with the illness, but with the support of the Mouth Cancer Foundation, we know people have a great set of resources at their disposal to fight it.
St Andrews Dental Care – Free Mouth Cancer Examination
As a local Hull Dentist we are delighted to offer EVERYONE we can a free mouth cancer examination to ensure that they have a chance – even without being a current patient of ours to have this very important check carried out. There is absolutely no obligation to become a patient of ours if you are not currently – this is simply a way for us to support this fantastic foundation and help local people make sure they are not suffering from mouth cancer.
To take part, simply pop along to our surgery this Wednesday 17th September and a member of our friendly team will help you. Please note that spaces may be limited, but we will do our best to help you.
