We are celebrating National Smile Month, a month-long campaign between 13 May and 13 June 2019.
National Smile Month is the largest and longest-running campaign to promote good oral health and share positive messages and engage others to develop and maintain a healthy mouth and smile they can be proud of.
During this month dental and other health professionals and organisations, try to highlight three key messages, all of which go a long way in helping us develop and maintain a healthy mouth.
- Brush your teeth last thing at night and on at least one other occasion with a fluoride toothpaste.
- Cut down on how much sugary food and drink you have, and how often you have them.
- Visit your dentist regularly, as often as they recommend.
Ultimately, the aim is to help us achieve good physical and mental wellbeing by improving our oral health.
