Free checks for mouth cancer in Brackley


A BRACKLEY dentist is offering free screening as part of national Mouth Cancer Month.

During every Wednesday afternoon in November the Orchid Dental Centre in Bridge Street will be offering free soft tissue examinations.

Over the next decade 30,000 people are expected to die from the disease and the team in Brackley has joined the call to increase early detection and reduce fatalities. The month of action is an annual campaign organised by the British Dental Health Foundation.

Brackley dentist, Dr Martin Attariani said: “As over half the population received a dental examination in the last two years, dental teams are in the ideal position to share information about the risks and symptoms of mouth cancer with their patients.”
