Learn from leading experts in the field of oral health as they talk about various aspects of mouth cancer in a ‘Question Time’ style programme.  The webinar is hosted by Dentist and Mouth Cancer Foundation Ambassador, Dr Philip Lewis and features Mr Mahesh Kumar, a Consultant in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the North West London Hospitals Trust and Nicki Rowland, from the charity, talking about the Mouth Cancer Screening Accreditation Scheme.

Mouth Cancer Foundation Consultant Nicki Rowland says “A programme of this nature, broadcast via the internet, is an excellent way of drawing attention to mouth cancer and oral health.  I can think of no webinar more important for educating dental professionals than understanding about the early detection of mouth cancer and how performing a thorough head and neck cancer screening at routine dental examinations can save lives.”
