Snapchat at Showcase and support mouth cancer action

In addition to our general Oral Health Foundation stand, we will also be exhibiting from a dedicated area for our Mouth Cancer Action Month campaign.

Mouth Cancer Action Month runs throughout November and is aiming to get dental professionals on-board in a bid to raise awareness of mouth cancer, including common risk factors and the early warning signs.

Visit the stand and the charity's team to find out how you and your practice can get involved throughout November and make a difference to the outcome of mouth cancer in the UK.

We are also delighted to announce that for all of those attending the exhibition, we will be launching a very special Snapchat filter so that you can show your support for a disease which is diagnosed in around 7,000 Brits every year.

The Snapchat filter will be available throughout the three days and is exclusively accessible for visitors to the Excel Arena.

Simply log in to your Snapchat account, take a selfie and swipe right until you come across our #bluelipselfie filter, which has been developed with help from our campaign sponsors Denplan. Select the filter, add it to your story or just share with a selected few friends.

We'd love to see your Mouth Cancer Action Month Snapchats so before you post yours, please add us at 'oral-health'. You can do this by opening your Snapchat app and point the camera towards the image below. The app will automatically scan the image and send you straight to our account.... go on, give it a go and help us promote oral health!
