A Ponteland dental practice will be offering free mouth cancer examinations to local residents in support of Mouth Cancer Action Month, an annual campaign that takes place in November.

Honour Health, based at Bell Villas, is among those raising awareness of the importance of regular check-ups in protecting against the life-threatening disease.

It will provide free oral health checks, with mouth cancer examinations, tomorrow (Saturday) and Monday between 9.30am and 1pm.

Katherine Lawrence, one of the dentists at the practice, said: “Public awareness is vital to combatting the disease and through us all being ‘mouth aware’ and spotting mouth cancer early enough, we are giving everyone the best possible chance to be successfully treated and have a good quality of life.”
