Organised by the UK’s leading oral health charity, the British Dental Health Foundation, National Smile Month will take place between May 20 and June 20 in 2012. The campaign promotes three key messages, all of which go a long way to improve oral health in the UK.

• Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks;
• Visit your dentist regularly, as often as they recommend.
Dr Simon Channing co- owner of Chagford Dental Practice says, “National Smile Month is a great opportunity for our practice to help raise awareness of oral health. We will be actively participating by going out and about in Chagford during many of the lunchtimes throughout National Smile Month - handing out goodies and stickers as well as be available to answer any oral health related queries. ” Other activities at Chagford Dental Practice during National Smile Month include - any New Patients who join the practice during National Smile Month will receive 10% off their initial examination fee.
All check-ups for children will be free of charge during half term week which runs within National Smile Month. Further enquiries and information is available from Chagford Dental Practice who can be contacted on 01647 432224
