National Smile Month 2019 has gotten off to a great start and has given us plenty of reasons to sing. Now, thanks to our friends at ‘Health Matters Education’ (HME), we can all sing the same tune – the official song of National Smile Month 2019!

HME are a group who are dedicated to improving the health, fitness and well-being of children across the country and their original song “Toothbrush, Toothpaste, SMILE!” is the official song for National Smile Month 2019.

It is a song which does a fantastic job of helping young children understand why it’s important to brush and also reminds them to show off their healthy mouth with a happy smile! You can give it a listen below, just be warned, once you’ve heard it once you won’t be able to get it out of your head! 

Listen here:

Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Smile

Whether you’re a parent, oral health promoter, teacher or childminder, you can use this song to bring oral health education to children throughout National Smile Month and beyond.

There is no reason that children should wait till they become adults to start understanding what good oral health is and its value. In fact, the earlier children get into good oral hygiene habits the easier it tends to be for them to maintain throughout the rest of their lives. The songs and music CDs HME have produced are a wonderful way to start that journey to a great oral health routine.

The music CDs will be available again soon to purchase from the lovely people at Health Matters Education, with a percentage of the proceeds sent to support National Smile Month. Watch this space for further details.

Over the course of the month we aim to deliver our three key oral health messages.

  • Brush your teeth last thing at night and at least one other time during the day, with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Cut down on how much sugary foods and drinks you have, and how often you have them.
  • Visit the dentist regularly – as often as they recommend.

Let us know what you think of our official National Smile Month song and don’t forget to let us know how you’re getting involved with this year’s campaign.
