Welcome to the home of the Oral Health Foundation.

We are a leading independent charity working to improve oral health around the world. Our goal is to improve people's lives by reducing the harm caused by oral diseases - many of which are entirely preventable. Every year, we help a countless number of people to improve the health of their mouths through providing education materials and resources, advice and information and by organising campaigns and events.

Our Dental Helpline offers free and confidential advice while we supply the very best educational resources for use by the public, health and dental professionals. Our 'Approved' logo appears on hundreds of products in shops and supermarkets across the world while our campaigns like Mouth Cancer Action Month and National Smile Month make millions of people aware of the importance of good oral health.



For the last 40 years we have been improving oral health as the British Dental Health Foundation. We are proud and delighted to announce that we have changed our charity's name to the Oral Health Foundation.

Leading health charity, the Oral Health Foundation, have reiterated their call for the urgent introduction of a gender-neutral HPV vaccination in the UK in order to stop a rapid increase in mouth cancer cases.
