The Mouth Cancer Foundation is pleased to announce The Dental Centre in London as its ‘Practice of the Month’.   The Dental Centre at the University College London has been established for more than 40 years. The team of 10 staff is led by Dr Jones who has been Principal of the Practice for over 24 years and has modernised the Practice and maintains great customer service as their main focus.

Researchers from the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) in London have discovered that an innovative new combination treatment that uses the measles virus to target cancer cells could significantly improve treatment for head and neck cancer.

We have just heard that researchers from the Masonic Cancer Centre, University of Minnesota and the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry in the United States have discovered that the multifunctional protein complex calprotectin that is found inside cells may be used to slow the growth of head and neck cancer.

We are excited to announce that Apolline, the UK’s leading provider of unique business management and operational support services to the health and social care sectors, is supporting our newly launched Mouth Cancer Screening Accreditation Scheme.

In 2011 Mouth Cancer Awareness Day was successfully launched in Ireland by the Mouth Cancer Awareness Group. Members of the public are encouraged to visit dentists participating in the scheme for a FREE mouth cancer screening.

In exactly 100 days, we will all meet in Hyde Park to increase awareness of mouth cancer, raise much needed funds, celebrate survivorship, remember lost dear ones and have fun. There will be a medal. T-shirt and goodie bag full of surprises for everyone who takes part.
