We have seen so many fantastic events around the country so far during National Smile Month but this one could be a record breaker, quite literally. As this year’s campaign enters its second act we want to share with you an opportunity for you to be part of a hugely special Guinness World Record attempt.

The University of Glasgow Dental School is inviting you to register to be part of a thousand people who are aiming to set a world record for creating the world’s biggest smile at the Scottish Event Campus on Friday 9 June.

The attempt is part of a fun-filled day which also includes live music performances by the Glasgow Dental School Big Band.

Bring your friends, family and colleagues to the event, the more the merrier!

Over 20 musicians and singers will be providing entertainment during and after the world record attempt and you will be treated to a special oral health song which aims to raise awareness of good oral health habits.

Every single person who registers to be part of the record attempt will receive a special oral health goody bag.

The inspiration for this event stems back to a Comic Relief study conducted back in 2003 which discovered that Glasgow was ahead of other Scottish cities in the “smiles per hour census.”

Now, almost fifteen years since that study was conducted, the wonderful city of Glasgow wants to make another milestone which will undoubtedly leave residents smiling for years to come.

The Big Smile Big Band event organised to support National Smile Month aims to promote key positive oral health messages and celebrate the progress made with the oral health of children in Scotland.

We want people of all ages from all areas across the UK to join in and help promote the key oral health messages that National Smile Month is all about.  Make sure you brush your teeth last thing at night and at least one other time during the day with a fluoride toothpaste. Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks and make sure you pay your dentist a visit regularly, as often as they recommend.
