An investigation by one of the UK’s leading health charities has found British adults have extremely poor knowledge on the common causes and symptoms of mouth cancer.

A survey by the Oral Health Foundation reveals one in three (33%) are not aware that smoking causes mouth cancer while more than half (57%) do not know that alcohol contributes to the disease1.

Don't let gum disease ruin your smile

Young adults with feelings of depression are significantly more at risk of oral health diseases, according to the findings of a new study.

The research shows those suffering from sadness, helplessness and other symptoms of depression, are almost 20% more likely to also have severe gum disease.

Published in the Journal of Clinical Periodontology, scientists monitored the oral and mental health of more than 500 people from birth until the age of 30.

Hi My name is Shalina, I'm one of the dentists here at The Aigburth Dental Practice.

After a week of shadowing Dr Wilkinson at this practice in 2007 I went on to study dentistry in Sheffield and qualified in 2013. I am am now proud to have returned to Liverpool and to be part of this wonderful team.

I enjoy all aspects of general dentistry but particularly oral surgery and providing facial aesthetics treatments.

Outside of dentistry I like to travel to new places, I like to go walking in the countryside and I like to bake.
