We are celebrating National Smile Month at PMA Dental Care with two great specials. We’ve got some great goodie bags for children visiting during this month. For our older patients we have a special offer on tooth whitening.

National Smile Month is the UK’s largest oral health campaign. This year it kicks off on 20 May and finishes on 20 June. Right at the heart of it you’ll find three key messages that can go a long way to improving oral health. They are:

  • Brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day using a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks.
  • Visit the dentist regularly, as often as they recommend

Sounds simple? You’d think so, but there’s evidence to suggest not everyone keeps to these three most basic of messages. National Smile Month is a great opportunity for those who don’t to take stock of their oral health habits, and a great opportunity for those who do to pass the message onto others.

Organised by the British Dental Health Foundation, National Smile Month was established in 1976. Now into its 37th year, the campaign has helped to change the oral health landscape of the UK.
