May 20th 2013 marked the first day of the annual National Smile Month. An initiative of the British Dental Health Foundation, National Smile Month is the largest oral health campaign in the United Kingdom.
National Smile Month is a great opportunity to raise public awareness of the importance of healthy teeth and gums, not only for the good of our oral health but also for our general well-being.
This year actually marks the 37th National Smile Month event, having been established back in 1976. It has been vital in offering important advice to the community as well as dental professionals ever since.
There are a number of ways you can take part in National Smile Month. If you are keen to seek the most reliable advice on how to maintain good oral health, are interested in finding out more about how to raise awareness, or would like to register your interest in actively participating in the campaign, visit www.nationalsmilemonth.org.
National Smile Month runs until June 20th, 2013.
