Mouth Cancer Screening
John Miller Dental Practice is proud to be a member of the Mouth Cancer Screening Accreditation Scheme. As such we routinely carry out head and neck cancer screening and promote a better awareness of mouth cancer to our patients.
As with most cancers early detection is vital and it takes us less than 2 minutes to carry out a comprehensive screening, which we do as part of our routine check up and examination.
The Mouth Cancer Foundation Screening Scheme involves an assessment of both the face and neck to check for any abnormalities, this is followed by a simple intra-oral examination to observe the colour of the cheeks, gums and tongue. In all the screening takes approximately two minutes.
If you are worried about any unusual symptoms, please contact the practice immediately.
