Annual Free Oral Cancer Screening Event - April
Okanagan Smiles Kelowna Dentistry proudly partnered with The Oral Cancer Foundation to bring awareness to this rapidly growing disease. Because April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month, Okanagan Smiles offered free oral cancer screenings at the clinic. Our addition of a new piece of equipment, the VELscope, allows us to detect early warning signs of oral cancer, because your health is our priority!
Denture Assessment Clinic
Due to the increasing population of edentulous (having no teeth), Okanagan Smiles Kelowna Dentistry offered a free denture assessment exam. A surprisingly high percentage of denture wearers do not visit the dentist and wear ill-fitting dentures causing harm to their gums. This clinic offered the opportunity for denture wearers to have not only their dentures examined, but also the health of their mouth and gums.
