Nicki Rowland, Practice Manager at Perfect 32 Dental Practice in Beverley, was invited to be a consultant for the Mouth Cancer Foundation in light of her work to raise public awareness of mouth cancer and the mouth cancer screening service offered at the practice.
She is working with the Mouth Cancer Foundation on a brand new UK initiative, the Mouth Cancer Screening Accreditation Scheme, which recognizes dental teams for their commitment to screening for early signs of oral cancer and raising public awareness of this hidden killer. Mouth cancer is now three times more prevalent than cervical cancer for which there is a government initiative and three people die every hour from it in the UK.
Delegates attending next week’s Dentistry Show at the NEC in Birmingham on March 2 are being asked to consider if they can spare two minutes which could ultimately save lives. They will learn how through the Mouth Cancer Screening Accreditation Scheme lives can be saved when Charity Consultant, Nicki Rowland, speaks at the Dentistry Show Nurses Forum.
