MOUTH CANCER AWARENESS DAY

logo

Wednesday 17th September 2014

Mouth Cancer can be deadly and early detection is essential. In the UK, nearly 8000 people are diagnosed with Mouth Cancer every year.  Cancers can occur in any part of the mouth, tongue, lips, and adjacent areas like the throat, salivary glands, pharynx, larynx, sinus, and other sites in the head and neck area. In its very early stages, these Mouth Cancers can be easy to ignore.

The Mouth Cancer Foundation has devised a 'Two minutes to save a life' mouth cancer screening protocol, which is a 10-point checklist that every dentist should be able to include in their routine examinations.This is just one of the reasons why your routine examination appointment is so important to attend.

Further information is available from the mouth cancer foundation website at www.mouthcancerfoundation.org

British Dental Association Good Practice Scheme Silver Membership

BDA

At the end of December a few members of our staff team enjoyed an evening at the British Dental Association Good Practice Scheme at Wimpole Street, London. We were very pleased to be invited to celebrate our team’s commitment to providing a high standard of service to our patients.  

We our currently in our silver membership year with the BDA scheme and we were lucky enough to have our photograph taken with the BDA President (2012-13) Dr Barry McGonigle. 

We feel that the BDA Good Practice Scheme recognises the efforts of the whole dental team. It was a lovely end to 2013 and we look forward to working toward the Gold membership.

National Smile Month

Smile Month Picture

National Smile Month is the UK’s largest oral health campaign. This year it kicks off on 20 May and finishes on 20 June. Right at the heart of it you’ll find three key messages that can go a long way to improving oral health. They are:

  •  Brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day using a fluoride toothpaste.
  •  Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks. 
  •  Visit the dentist regularly, as often as they recommend

Sounds simple? You’d think so, but there’s evidence to suggest not everyone keeps to these three most basic of messages. National Smile Month is a great opportunity for those who don’t to take stock of their oral health habits, and a great opportunity for those who do to pass the message onto others.

Organised by the British Dental Health Foundation, National Smile Month was established in 1976. Now into its 37th year, the campaign has helped to change the oral health landscape of the UK.

The proportion of the population with no natural teeth in England, Northern Ireland and Wales has fallen to just six per cent in 2009. In 1978, the figure was as high as 37 per cent in Wales.

The majority of adults (71 per cent) in England, Wales and Northern Ireland are now free of visible dental decay on the surfaces of their teeth. 

In 2009, two thirds (66.6 per cent) of children aged 12 were found to be free of visible dental decay. In 1973, this figure was less than 10 per cent.

It’s not all smiles, however. Research has shown oral health problems persist, with many people overlooking the value of good oral health.

More than half of the UK workforce isn’t allowed to take paid leave off work to visit their dentist

60 per cent of people aged 65 and over regret not looking after their teeth earlier in life.

In 2013 National Smile Month has once again teamed up with three giants of oral healthcare to deliver a campaign to remember. We are delighted to stand alongside Wrigley, Oral-B and Listerine who are helping to make everyone smile in 2013 with their generous charitable support.
