What to look out for:

  • Ulcers that do not heal within three weeks.

You are more at risk if:

Mouth cancer can affect any one of us and can spread quickly. So please visit your dentist regulary and ask if a mouth cancer check is done at your check up . It could save your life.

Because we care about your health we provide this check for non registered patients as well as our regular patients

I found this practice after an experience elsewhere. I was seen straight away and my pain was dealt with. I signed up to the payment plan and saved money as well.
