Mouth Cancer Screening
Mouth cancer is a malignant growth which can occur in any part of the mouth, including the tongue, lips and throat. Mouth cancers have a higher proportion of deaths per number of cases than breast cancer, cervical cancer or skin melanoma. The mortality rate is just over 50%, despite treatment, with about 1,700 deaths per year in the UK. This is because of late detection. Visit your dentist at once if you notice any abnormal problems or are not sure. Regular dental checkups allow early detection of abnormalities in the mouth.
The Mouth Cancer Foundation is a registered charity that raises awareness of mouth cancers and provides information and support to patients, carers and health professionals.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to all the staff. We are new to your practice and our son Jake had two teeth extracted on Tuesday. Jake was very nervous. He really struggles with “needles” and was worried about the whole procedure. Everyone went out of their way to put Jake at ease from the welcoming receptionists, dental nurses and of course the dental surgeon. With your support, he managed to have the two 1st teeth removed and although I know he wants to avoid similar experiences, the experience was much better than he expected.
Thank you for going the extra mile for Jake. Jake really appreciated it and so did we.
Ian, Anne & Jake
