If you are looking for mouth cancer screening in Leicestershire, then we can offer our services to you. We are Glen Dental, situated within a five minute drive from Oadby Town Centre.
We are a friendly and welcoming practice offering a range of treatments. Included in each Dental Health Examination is a mouth cancer screening. Leicester, like the rest of the UK, is seeing an unfortunate rise in cancer patients. Many cases of mouth cancer could be reduced in severity by simply taking part in regular mouth cancer screening. At Glen Dental, we include a screening to ensure that all our patients can keep a track of their health. It is therefore important to keep up to date with regular Dental Health Examinations. If you have fallen behind on your dentist visits or have recently moved and need to join a new dentist, then give us a call today to arrange your Dental Health Examination and mouth cancer screening in Leicester.
If there is something that we feel requires further attention, then we will make the necessary specialist referral – usually to a Maxillofacial Surgeon.
As part of Mouth Cancer Action Month each November, Lina and Shrikesh Kotecha offer members of the communities of Great Glen, Kibworth, Fleckney, Oadby, Wigston, Houghton on the Hill, and Market Harborough FREE mouth cancer screenings to members of the public.
Late detection of mouth cancers have resulted in a higher proportion of deaths per number of cases than breast cancer, cervical cancer or skin melanoma, with about 2,700 deaths per year in the UK.
Studies show that mouth cancer is on the increase and that early detection dramatically improves the chances of recovery. Mouth cancer screening is a short procedure at the dental practice that involves a thorough examination of your whole mouth.
