Dental Showcase, Halloween, Mouth Cancer Action Month, Christmas – that’s what quarter four looks like for us at J&S Davis (and many others in the dental industry).
The colour blue isn’t the only common theme shared between J&S Davis and Mouth Cancer Action Month, we are both strong supporters of raising awareness and funds for Mouth Cancer Action. From putting up posters, to selling blue ribbon badges, every little helps when it comes to making people aware of the signs and symptoms of this deadly illness. Mouth Cancer takes more than 2,000 lives of people in the UK alone every year, twice as many as both cervical and testicular cancers combined, which is why we are asking you to support this worthy cause.
Mouth Cancer Action Month relies on the efforts of supporters to raise money to allow the Oral Health Foundation to continue their charitable work, aiming to reduce mouth cancer incidences in the UK.
Three signs and symptoms NOT to ignore are:
- Ulcers which do not heal in 3 weeks
- Red and white patches in the mouth
- Unusual lumps or swellings in the mouth or head and neck area
If any of these are noticed, you must tell your dentist or doctor immediately.
