Our Supporters Learn How to Save Lives with Mouth Cancer Screening Accreditation Scheme

Today our supporters from DPAS will attend a training and information workshop in Birmingham to learn how lives can be saved through our brand new Mouth Cancer Screening Accreditation Scheme.

As mouth cancer can be deadly, its early detection is essential. The Mouth Cancer Screening Accreditation Scheme recognises dental practices that demonstrate a visible commitment to increasing public awareness of mouth cancer screening to all patients and to establish a documented referral pathway with a local specialist department.

Dentists must meet certain criteria and routinely participate in oral cancer screening.  There is a quick, detailed examination that takes just TWO MINUTES and can save lives.

Only by working together we can beat mouth cancer. Raising awareness of the disease and stressing the importance of its early detection are the first steps to increase the chances of survival.
