Today marks the start of National Smile Month, the UK’s largest and longest-running campaign to promote good oral health.
The three 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 ultimately improve the UK’s oral health by raising awareness of important health issues in a bid to make a positive difference to the oral health of millions.
Just like last year we are supporting the campaign in many various ways throughout the month and our “Dental Role Play” area is up again!….so feel free to bring you little ones down with you to your appointment and let them learn about the importance of oral health through play.
