Don't wait for next World Health Day to find out.  Arrange an Oral Cancer Check with your dentist at any time.  Free of charge.

Mouth Cancer, also known as oral cancer, is where a tumour develops on the surface of the tongue, mouth, lips or gums.  Tumours can also occur in the salivary glands, tonsils and the pharynx (the part of the throat from your mouth to your windpipe) but these are less common.

Regular Dental Check ups are very important for dental health.  Do yourself a favour and look after your mouth and teeth.  Visit a dentist every 6 months but at least once a year to maintain a healthy mouth and to prevent any problems from getting bigger

Look out for our dedicated day of FREE Oral Health & Cancer checks offered by our dentist at Dental Shetland Surgery, 28 North Road, Lerwick usually in October
