Our 2025 theme will be announced soon.

Take a selfie with the Oral Health Foundation’s iconic Smiley. 

This year’s National Smile Month we want to make sure people are sharing the message about how important it is to take good care of oral health all over the UK. Since the campaign champions the benefits of having a healthy smile, it is a perfect opportunity for everyone keen to take part to share the information with the public and encourage others to join!

If you think we are asking you to share some scientific research papers or a two-hour-long webinar then you will be surprised to hear that all we need from you is a selfie! Hold on, and the best part is you will get a chance to enter a competition and win one of our wonderful prizes.

How to take part

  • Head over to our shop to order Oral Health Foundation’s iconic Smiley – its main purpose is to share key messages on how to achieve better oral health (brush your teeth twice a day, cut down on sugary foods and drinks and visit the dentist regularly).

  • Take a selfie with a Smiley and post it on your social media. Don’t forget to show your smile behind it or even take a video of showing off both!

  • Make sure to include #mysmileyselfie and #smilemonth to enter the competition and preferably a location of where you are posting the selfies from.

We will then select 3 winners, each of them will be receiving 4 tickets to local comedy shows. Bet we got you interested so don’t waste any time and get those selfies in!
