National Smile Month is the UK’s largest oral health campaign and runs from 20 May until 20 June. At the heart of it are three key messages that can go a long way to improving oral health. They are:
- Brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day using a fluoride toothpaste.
- Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks.
- Visit the dentist regularly, as often as they recommend
National Smile Month is organised by the British Dental Health Foundation and sponsored by many of the major dental manufacturers and suppliers. As part of the campaign, there is an excellent website - http://www.nationalsmilemonth.org - which contains more details about the campaign, advice on what you can do to improve your oral health and activities for children.
At AllClear, we believe that prevention is better than cure and wholeheartedy support the message of the National Smile Campaign. To find out more or to book an appointment, call in, phone 020 8688 3869or see our website.
