National Smile Month

National Smile Month is the largest and longest-running campaign to promote good oral health.

Together, with thousands of individuals and organizations, it 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 with a fluoride toothpaste.

Cut down on how much sugary food and drinks 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.

The campaign encourages dental and health professionals, schools, pharmacies, community groups, colleges, and workplaces – in fact, anyone with an interest in good oral healthcare – to join in and help us educate, motivate and communicate positive oral health messages and improve the quality of smiles all around the world.
