Raising awareness of mouth cancer
Patients are being offered free mouth cancer screenings at a Fenland dental practice next month.
The March Dental Surgery is raising awareness of Mouth Cancer Action Month throughout November.
As part of its efforts to raise awareness, the surgery is offering free oral cancer examinations to patients old and new on Thursday, November 12.
Principal dentist, Dr Amiras Chokshi, said: “It is vital people are aware of the risks and are checked regularly for signs of mouth cancer – early detection saves lives.”
Staff will also be raising money by wearing something blue on the campaign’s Blue Wednesday event on November 18.
