The people of Milton Keynes are getting all shook up as a city dentist will be home to the King’s crown - just for today - as it tours Great Britain.

Appledore Dental Clinic on Midsummer Boulevard is holding an Elvis Day with a model of Elvis Presley’s teeth together with the genuine Crown made for the star by former Memphis dentist Henry J Weiss.

It is thought Elvis had toothache just before he died after a visit to his dentist the night before his death.

The ‘King’s Crown’ as it is known, will work its way around each of the dental clinics in a bid to help bring the shocking statistic of five a day who die from mouth cancer in the UK, down to four a day.

The Elvis Day will involve costumes, promotions and free mouth cancer screenings.

The glass display holding the model teeth and crown will travel around the UK to highlight National Mouth Cancer Month which will include free mouth screenings, promotions and fundraising events at each of the dental practices.

Each dental clinic will also dress up in Elvis costumes for the day and have memorabilia and Elvis’ music in the waiting rooms.
