The Foundation “With a Smile for Life” helps fight against oral cancer. The main objectives of the Foundation are: -dissemination of knowledge and information about cancers of the mouth -great importance of the dentist role as a practitioner in the prevention of cancer. To achieve our goals we made a lot of very significant actions like: -we co-organized series of lectures that focused on the prevention of cancer, oral cancer treatment, screening examination. During the lectures we also presented modern methods of early detection of oral cancer. -we also organized an action called "Open days in the dentist office" Action focused around many dental offices and clinics.
