A simple smile is often our most powerful possession. A key part of National Smile Month is to help put smiles on everyone's faces. We developed the Smiley to become synonymous with the campaign and with improving oral health.

With our Smiley, you'll find it impossible not to show your smile behind it. More than half a million of you have used them over the years. It’s simple fun, and educational too.

Each Smiley carries our three key messages for good oral health:

  • Brush your teeth last thing at night and on at least one other occasion with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Cut down on how much and how often you have sugary foods and drinks.
  • Visit your dentist regularly, as often as they recommend.

Having a healthy smile is both physically and psychologically beneficial. It can boost your confidence, improve your appearance and even how we are perceived by other people. But it is not just enough to have a healthy smile. You must show it too. Smiling has been shown to help improve mental health, not only helping to put ourselves in a better mood but also have a positive and lifting affect on those around us.

The Smiley is a great opportunity to take a moment to think about your oral health, and more importantly share how it can be improved.

Buy your Smiley

Our Smileys are available from our online shop, with a pack of ten costing only £2.50, with the proceeds going towards a great cause. 

Help support National Smile Month by putting a smile(y) on your face!

We want to see what you are doing for National Smile Month and by sharing your selfie you will be connecting with the key messages of National Smile Month and raising awareness of better oral health for all.

Go on, give us a smiley.
