Prevention of oral cancer.
This section was adapted from: ‘Delivering Better Oral Health’ a joint publication of the Department of Health and British Association for the Study of Community Dentistry.
We aim to empower our clients to make positive decisions to improve their oral health. The following advice is aimed at achieving this.
All adolescents and adults.
- Do not smoke
- Do not use smokeless tobacco (eg paan, chewing tobacco, gutkha, betel nut).
- Reduce alcohol consumption to moderate (recommended) levels.
- Maintain good dietary practices.
- Increase fruit and vegetable intake to at least five portions per day.
Oral cancer screening services are available privately by prior arrangements, please ask at reception if you wish to access it.
The Smile Club.
There are other preventative services that we can offer but these are available only to our smile club or private clients. Smile club members and their children will be offered these services at no additional cost. Private fee per item clients will however incur charges.
