As part of your Healthy Mouth Review, we thoroughly check every one of our clients for signs of mouth cancer. As our dentists have worked in the Referral Centres which other dentists rely on for a second opinion, they are further experienced in spotting potential problems early. We also have an excellent working relationship with our consultant colleagues at nearby hospitals, so rest assured that you are in safe hands.
As always, we are passionate about delivering the highest quality care with attention to detail, in an approachable and unhurried manner. This includes offering you practical and judgement-free advice on addressing the lifestyle choices which put you at greater risk than others, should you wish.
