In conjunction with our colleagues in Dublin Dental University Hospital and with dentists throughout the Country, we are delighted to host the Mouth Cancer Awareness Day 2013.
Each year more than 300 patients are diagnosed with cancer of the mouth or pharynx and the benefits of prevention and early detection are well known. Mouth Cancer Awareness Day is an important event in the promotion of oral and general health care for the population.
Staff and student participation in MCAD plays an important role in raising public and professional awareness of the modifiable risk factors and warning signs for Mouth Head & Neck Cancer for current and future members of the dental team and their patients.
"There is irrefutable evidence that early detection and treatment significantly improves the prognosis of patients with Mouth Head and Neck Cancer. I commend the work of MHNCAI in the design and implementation of the Mouth Cancer Awareness Day, now in its 4th Year". Dr Peter Cooney, Chief Dental Officer, Canada.
The Cork University Dental School & Hospital will also be offering free screening on that day by appointment only. The phone number to make appointments is (021) 4901169. This dedicated line will be answered from 10-2pm from 11th – 17th September (exc. weekend).
Congratulations to Dr Gerry McKenna
