Mouth Cancer Action Month

Mouth Cancer Action Month (MCAM) is a campaign throughout November run by the Oral Health Foundation each year to raise awareness of mouth cancer, from knowing what signs to look out for, key symptoms, and the rising number of cases in the UK.

At Newby Dental Practice, as a new dentist in scarborough, we are passionate about a holistic approach to dental care. As such oral cancer screening is something we complete at every visit.

As dentists, nurses and hygienists, we have the opportunity to discuss oral cancer and make sure everyone is aware of the risks, signs and symptoms. If we can help everyone make positive choices, learn to check for changes of the soft tissues of their mouths, and seek professional help at the earliest stage, we can help make a big difference to the success rates of oral cancer treatments” Emma- Principal dentist

If you’ve not had an oral cancer screening in awhile, get in touch to book your new patient consultation with one of our dentists.
