National Smile Month 14th May-14th June 2018

National Smile Month is the UK’s largest and longest-running campaign to promote good oral health.

Together, with thousands of individuals and organisations, National Smile Month highlights three key messages, all of which go a long way in helping us develop and maintain a healthy mouth.

The key messages are:

  • Brush your teeth last thing at night and on at least one other occasion with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks.
  • Visit your dentist regularly, as often as they recommend.

The aim of National Smile Month is to improve the UK’s oral health.  Organised by oral health charity, the Oral Health Foundation, the campaign hopes to raise awareness of important health issues and make a positive difference to the oral health of millions.  They have an on-line shop for oral health products as well as promotional and educational resources.
