Bamboo Dental’s Dan Rogers live on Radio Cardiff
Bamboo’s head dentist, Dan Rogers will be taking over the air waves at Radio Cardiff this Tuesday, August 26th from 1pm so make sure you tune in and listen.
Dan will be discussing the importance of mouth cancer and the mobile mouth cancer event which is taking place on Saturday, August 30th at the Cardiff Bay retail park, where he will be performing free mouth cancer checks on behalf of the Mouth Cancer Foundation.
Dan said: “We can all take action against mouth cancer now and the purpose of the Mouth Cancer health checks is to inform and educate the public on how to spot the early signs of the disease because the stage at which it is diagnosed has a big impact on survival rates. Ulcers which fail to heal in three weeks, red and white patches in your mouth, and unusual lumps or swellings in the mouth or head and neck area should be checked out by a dentist or GP without delay. It’s not just adults that need to be aware of the signs, children need to be educated too.
You can reduce your risk of mouth cancer by avoiding tobacco products, cut down on alcohol, eat at least five portions of fruit or vegetables a day, and protect your lips with sunscreen. To find out more about this and to take advantage of your free mouth cancer check make sure you join the Bamboo Dental team from 9.00am.
