World Oral Health Day is celebrated every year on the 20th March. It is an international day to celebrate the benefits of a healthy mouth and to promote worldwide awareness of the issues around oral health and the importance of oral hygiene to looking after everyone old and young.

Sadly, cases of head and neck cancers are still on the increase.  So, it appears that the general public are still unaware of the symptoms to look out for. The Mouth Cancer Foundation has a variety of FREE leaflets available which can help you educate your patients about risk factors and signs of the disease.

The Mouth Cancer Foundation has a brand-new head office telephone number to make directing your calls to us even easier. For all administration, financial, media and leaflet requests, please contact the charity’s head office number on 020 8940 5680.

Have you checked yourself for mouth cancer this month? Our never-ending drive is to encourage everyone to Bite Back at Mouth Cancer and carry out a simple self, head and neck cancer check at home, ideally once a month.

As it is International Women’s day today we’re encouraging all the women out there to take charge of your loved ones and make sure they include a check for mouth cancer once a month.  It is a simple, quick check.  You can even follow our step by step Bite Back at mouth Cancer guide.

The deadline for sending in application forms for the Support Group Awards 2019 is Sunday 31st March.

Walk All Over Cancer is a fundraising and activity challenge that occurs every March in aid of the charity Cancer Research UK. Participants are challenged to a sponsored walk of 10,000 steps every day during the month, and all proceeds from the fundraising are donated to the charity.
