Summary
National Smile Month is a charity campaign all about championing the benefits of having good oral health and promoting the value of a healthy smile.

Maintaining a healthy smile can be simple but for so many this can be very difficult.

Despite the many improvements in oral health over the last 40 years, inequalities continue to be a burden for countless individuals.

By supporting National Smile Month, you will be able to help us reach groups where oral disease is far too common.

National Smile Month is your chance to reach people in the heart of your community. Help others achieve better oral health by sharing important oral health messages.

Key messages for great oral health

During National Smile Month, we are promoting four key messages for better oral health:

  • Brush your teeth for two minutes, last thing at night and at one other time during the day, with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Use mouthwash and clean between your teeth with interdental brushes or floss every day.
  • Cut down on how much sugar you have, and how often you have it.
