Wednesday the 21st of September was Mouth Cancer Awareness day. We are happy to say it was a huge success! We performed free mouth cancer screening for the dozens of patients that came in to see us between 2 and 3 pm.
We were delighted to see the public interest in this initiative and we would encourage anyone who is worried about any lump or bump in their mouth to come in and see us. Screening is painless and easy!
Mouth cancer is on the rise in this country but there is a good chance to be cured if it is diagnosed and treated early. Increased awareness and early detection can help to reduce the number of fatalities associated with this disease.
As part of your Dental Health Check, we always pay close attention to the health of your tongue, lips, cheeks and skin. Your PRSI scheme and Medical Card entitles you to a free annual Dental Health Check so don’t forget to avail of this!
