Make someone's day by nominating them for a special National Smile Month prize

This is your chance to nominate someone who has done something amazing in the community. We’re looking for people who go the extra mile to bring a smile to a person’s face.

We want to hear about people in your team, the public, family members, someone from the community and patients – anybody who you think deserves to be nominated for doing something special or always brightens up your day. 

Throughout National Smile Month we will be selecting a winner each week.

The competition has kindly been sponsored by Oral B. As such, each winner will receive a special card and gift from the Oral Health Foundation and a brand new Oral B electric toothbrush.

Taking inspiration from last year's winners

As part of last year's National Smile Month, we recognised three truly extraordinary people. Below is a collage of last year's winners - island dentist Dr Michael Twamley (top-left), Supernanny Fabiana Madeira (bottom-left), and keen stable volunteer Libby (right).

For more information about last year's winners check out their write-ups below:

If you know somebody who has been an inspiration to yourself, or others, we'd love to hear from you.
