We are the Oral Health Foundation


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, is delighted to announce the return of National Smile Month for 2016, this year the campaign promises to be bigger and better than ever as it marks its 40th birthday.

As of April 1, 2016, there are a new set of charges for NHS dental work. The new charges, which have been increased by 5% will apply to all three bands. Find out what you now will need to pay.
