National Smile Month is the UK is the largest and longest-running campaign to promote good oral health.
The aim of this Month is to ultimately 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.
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. They are:
- Brush your teeth last thing at night and on at least one other occasion during the day with a fluoride toothpaste.
- Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks.
- Visit your dentist regularly, as often as they recommend.
This year the campaign will take place between 14 May and 14 June, and will encourage all dental and health professionals, schools, pharmacies, community groups, colleges and workplaces and anyone with an interest in good oral health care, to join, educate, motivate and communicate the positive oral health messages and improves the quality of smiles all around the UK.
Our team at Angel smile and orthodontics is happy to participate on this month by giving patient oral health advices.
A great smile is closer than you think!
