Oral Cancer Awareness Month

October is Oral Cancer Awareness Month.
 
You probably knew that your routine dental check up included an oral cancer screening. But did you also know that everyone in Scotland is entitled to 2 FREE NHS dental exams every year?
 
There really is no reason to delay scheduling your appointment.
 
Call our friendly reception team on 0141 632 1378 or book online.

Mouth Cancer Action Month is a charity a campaign which aims to address and tackle mouth cancer in the United Kingdom.

At the Oral Health Foundation, we want to the get more mouth cancers diagnosed at an early stage by raising awareness of the disease while encouraging everybody to be more vigilant about changes in their mouth.

This year in the UK, around 8,300 people will be given the life-changing news that they have mouth cancer and this is continuing to rise.
