Philip Lewis was interviewed live on BBC Radio Devon earlier this week.
As an Ambassador for the Mouth Cancer Foundation he was asked to comment on how members of the public can get screened for the early detection of the disease. The interview followed a distressing account from a 33 year old mother of three who neither drinks nor smokes who is now seriously ill even following aggressive treatment.
Philip pointed out that mouth cancer can affect anybody, even those with healthy lifestyles and recommended all patients ask their dentist if he or she is carrying out regular mouth cancer screenings for them. He stressed that early detection saves lives.
Avenue Road Dental Practice will be offering free mouth cancer screenings on Wednesday, September 17th between 3.00-5.00pm. Places are limited so please book your appointment now by calling 01983 759567.
