On 22nd May, we had a day with a difference at Brightside Dental. We were selected as one of 11 dental practices in the UK to be part of Elvis Presley’s dental crown tour.
We had Elvis’s original tooth crown at the practice for the day. We had Elvis memorabilia and music, along with Salvis, an Elvis tribute artist who performed live at the practice on the day. We even had a couple come along from Buckinghamshire, who had seen the event in the press.
A great day was had by all, with some of our clients a bit surprised when they walked in to see the team dressed up. As well as a day of fun, the reason for the event was a more serious message – to raise the awareness of mouth cancer and the importance of increased survival rates by early detection.
As part of the day, we carried out free mouth cancer screening for all those who wished to have it undertaken. We were also raising money for the Mouth Cancer Foundation charity and are pleased to say we raised £300. This was achieved by way of donations, a raffle and the selling of cupcakes.
We would like to thank everyone who helped out – those who gave up their time for free, companies who donated raffle prizes and our team members who ensured that the event went so well.
