Dental Professionals from the Fresh Smile Dental Clinic in Brighouse, have raised £1,018 at the recent Mouth Cancer 10km Awareness Walk in London.

The team decided to participate in the walk and support the Mouth Cancer Foundation because they wanted to raise greater awareness of mouth cancer.

Manager Nuzat Zaman said: “Mouth cancer is often undiagnosed as many people are unaware of changes happening in their mouths.

“This is the reason why we as dental healthcare professionals should raise awareness of the disease, educate our patients and stress the importance of regular dental checks.”

The Founder of the Mouth Cancer Foundation Dr Joshi said: “Fresh Smile’s contribution to The Mouth Cancer 10km Awareness Walk highlights the level of dedication that people have to making the Awareness Walk the huge success it is year on year.

“All money raised from the walk goes towards helping improve the support for mouth cancer sufferers and their families and carers.”
