With National Smile Month coming to an end for yet another year, we have taken a look at its impact and success. The charitable campaign in 2014 was arguable National Smile Month's biggest and best yet, and after 38 years the event continues to grow from strength to strength.

National Smile Month is ultimately here to improve the UK's oral health while raising awareness of important health issues, and making a positive difference to the oral health of millions of people throughout the UK.

With the help and enthusiasm of those who are passionate about health and wellbeing, National Smile Month 2014 has seen thousands of wonderful activities up and down the UK educating and engaging local communities about the importance of a healthy mouth.

A huge thank you to all those involved in National Smile Month, we hope to see you again next year.

British Dental Health Foundation presents a lovely infographic with all the stats for the oral ehalth campaing - 3145 organisations supporting NSM 2014, 1785 oral health activities and events, 2009 dental practices taking part, 892 smiley selfies sent to us on social media, 811 items of coverage in the press and media, 6928 oral health posters in waiting rooms, 150k smileys reaching poorest areas of the UK, 40271 total visits to the Smile Month website, 60m people reached with campaign messages, 38 years of National Smile Month to date, 758 schools teaching oral health & hygiene.
