At The Smart Clinics, London
NationalSmileMonth is the UK’s largest and longest running campaign to promote good oral health.
The Smart Clinics are fully behind the campaign and supporting the drive to raise awareness of important oral health issues, thereby enhancing physical and mental health.
National Smile Month
In 2018, National Smile Month runs from 14th May to 14th June.
The campaign encourages anyone with an interest in good oral healthcare to help educate and communicate positive mouth health messages. This doesn’t only include dental and health professionals – groups such as schools, pharmacies, community groups, colleges and workplaces are all welcome to get involved.
National Smile Month highlights and promotes three key messages which are simple and well-understood. These measures go a long way towards helping to develop and maintain good oral health:
- Brush your teeth twice a day (including last thing at night) using fluoride toothpaste
- Cut down on the frequency of sugary foods and drinks
- Visit your dentist regularly, as often as they recommend
National Smile Month is organised by health charity, the Oral Health Foundation (previously known as the British Dental Health Foundation) and reaches over 50 million people every year.
The organisers say:
“By taking part in National Smile Month, you are helping to creating a healthier and happier world. The campaign channels positivity and promotes the true value of a smile, not only for its benefits towards physical health, but mental wellbeing too.”
Two Minute Challenge
This year, #NationalSmileWeek includes the ‘2 minute challenge’ to get people involved.
The challenge is to see who can brush their teeth closest to two minutes without using a clock or watch.
This stems from research which shows that adults given the 2 minute challenge will only brush for 54 seconds – less than half the recommended time.
For more information on how to use the challenge for fun, education and fundraising, see http://www.nationalsmilemonth.org/ and click on ‘Two minute challenge’ for further details.
