Mouth Cancer Awareness Month
Did you know, visiting a dentist could save your life!
All our patients undergo oral cancer screening as part of their dental examination. Your dentist will inspect not just your teeth but your entire mouth, tongue and cheeks, making visiting your dentist regularly vital to help early detection.

Tooth Friendly Easter Egg Hunt
Easter Saturday, we hosted a child friendly Easter Egg Hunt. Children were encouraged to visit the practice for a NHS check up and fun and games. All children that attended left with a tooth-friendly Easter gift of an Easter basket full of dental goodies.
Play Planet Pre-school Educational Visit
Staff visited Play Planet Pre-school to promote oral health to the toddler group, parents and staff. A presentation covering information on teething, healthy teeth and gums, diet, brushing and the importance of regular visits to dentist was given to the group. During the session, the attention of the children was captivated by our display showing hidden sugars in various popular food and drinks and a display done to show correct brushing technique.
Tooth Fairy Day at Oak Dental
Sadly the weather was bad but it didn't stop us! Tooth brushing instruction and the sugar shocker game proved very popular with the kids, who had to weigh out the amount of sugar they thought were in some common foods. One little boy even gave the Tooth Fairy his dummy which was really positive.

Staff Visit Leigh Beck Junior School
Staff at Oak Dental Canvey visited local school Leigh Beck Junior in conjunction with their human body assignment. Staff focused on diet and brushing techniques and all the children had a go at flossing. They played a sugar game with a spinning wheel and demonstrated what happens to teeth during the decaying process using Coke. 78 children were presented to all aged between 8 & 9 years old. The children genuinely enjoyed the session and were given a goodie bag and certificates.
Here's Ellis showing his appreciation!
