Dental Nurse News: Dentists best placed to spot mouth cancer

A visit to the dentist could save your life!

A recent article in the British Dental Journal makes the case for the dental profession being uniquely placed to spot early signs of mouth cancer. The point is being discussed at Westminster and the idea has cross party support. The British Dental Association has joined with Cancer Research UK to launch a “toolkit” to help dentists and other dental professionals identify the early signs of mouth cancer which poses a serious threat to public health.
