Abbey Dental Care – National Smile Month News

May 25, 2017 by abbeyden

National Smile Month is celebrating its 41st birthday this year! That’s a great number of years to be spreading the word about oral health and how to achieve and maintain a healthy mouth. However, there’s still work to be done.

The three main messages of this year’s campaign are to brush your teeth last thing at night and at least one other time in the day with fluoride toothpaste; cut down on sugary food and drinks and finally to visit your dentist regularly, as often as they recommend.

National Smile Month is for all dental and health professionals. As well as schools, pharmacies, colleges and community groups, which take part. In fact, it’s for anyone with interest in good oral care who would like to deliver a positive message about how to look after our teeth and gums and to improve the quality of people’s smiles within the UK.
