Dentists’ Provident is delighted to support Mouth Cancer Action Month for the third year running. We are proud to be part of such an important campaign and be able to share the positive campaign messages with our dentist members.
With such a significant increase in the number of people diagnosed with mouth cancer in the UK, it is vital for us all to raise awareness and encourage support of Mouth Cancer Action Month.
One person loses their life to mouth cancer every five hours and, if caught early, the chances of living more than five years increase by 90%.
Mouth Cancer Action month features on our website reminding dentists to undertake screenings for their patients and also that is it important to check themselves.
