From everyone at the Oral Health Foundation, we hope that you are healthy and keeping well during these exceptionally tough times.

The coronavirus pandemic has had a significant impact on the way we live our lives, personally and professionally.

For our charity, it has changed the way that we are able reach communities, especially those who are isolated and vulnerable. We remain passionate and committed to helping support people across the UK to achieve a good standard of oral health.

That is why we are proud to announce that this year’s National Smile Month (18 May – 18 June) will be going ahead.

Whether you have been redeployed, on furlough, or working from home, you can still make a big difference by doing what you love. You can play a key part in the campaign’s success.

It is important that we continue delivering information and advice for people and families to have a healthy mouth, in a safe and responsible way. So, for the first time, National Smile Month will be an entirely digital campaign

There has arguably never been a better time for a positive campaign that encourages fun educational activities and promotes the value of a healthy smile. These principles have always been at the heart of National Smile Month, this will never change.

But we cannot do it without you.

Over the coming weeks, we’ll be in touch with some fantastic digital resources. These will help you share oral health messages with your local community, from a safe distance and engage them on the benefits of a healthy mouth.
