A MATLOCK dentist is offering free screenings against mouth cancer to people as part of a national awareness scheme.
Genesis Dental Care will be providing the service on Saturday, November 10 between 10am and 12.30pm as part of mouth cancer awareness month – which the British Dental Health Foundation run throughout November every year.
Dr Fleur Kellett said: “Mouth cancer is very difficult for an individual to detect on their own so we would encourage people to come along.
“With early screening and detection the prognosis is very good for a complete recovery.”
The most common causes of mouth cancer are linked to tobacco and alcohol – especially neat spirit – consumption.
