National Smile Month is a campaign to raise awareness of how simple it is to improve your oral health! The campaign runs from 19th May to 19th June 2014 and focuses on 3 simple messages:
1. Brush your teeth twice a day using a fluoride toothpaste
2. Cut down on how often you have sugary snacks or drinks
3. Visit your dentist as often as they recommend
Each day during this month, we have been posting photos of one staff member brandishing the National Smile Month smiley – you can see all of these on our Facebook or Twitter feeds!
Kerry Cooper, one of experienced dental nurses won the BDJ’s Smile Competition with her photo, whilst Debbie was highly commended for her “Unhappy Hygienist” photo!
