National Smile Month

Between 17 May and 17 June 2021, the Oral Health Foundation will be raising awareness of important health issues and ready to put a smile on everybody's face.

We want you to join us and make a positive difference to the oral health of millions of people.

Pledge your support Take part

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 five truly extraordinary people. Below is a collage of last year's winners - Varshini Sundaram (top-left), Sophie Lesiuk (top-right), Joshua Forster (bottom-left), Wendy-Ling Relph (bottom centre) and Mary Lock (bottom-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.
