Elvis Presley will be honoured by dentists in the U.K. in May (14) with "Elvis Day", when a model of his teeth and dental crown will be displayed to promote mouth cancer awareness.

A dozen dentists will host the event, which involves costumes, music, and free mouth cancer screenings, according to organisers.

The Hound Dog hitmaker's dental mould and a dental crown made for the music icon will also be on display for fans.

The day before Presley's death in 1977, he visited a dentist, and the crown made during the visit was bought at auction in 2012 by Canadian author, dentist, and celebrity teeth collector Michael Zuk.

He purchased the crown for $11,000 (£6,500) and decided to send it on "tour".
