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

Everybody deserves great oral health.  This vision is at the heart of everything we do.

As an entirely self-funded charity, we rely on your generous support to help us achieve this.

Every donation we receive goes directly towards improving people’s quality of life through better oral health. Every penny helps support our campaigns, programmes and charitable work.

Tackling unfair inequalities

Despite the vast improvements in oral health over the last 40 years, inequalities continue to be a burden for countless groups.

The elderly, those on lower incomes or in areas of low social economic status, people with educational barriers or learning difficulties, those with reduced mobility, physical or mental disabilities and the homeless are all more likely to suffer from chronic ill-health.

Improving childhood oral health

Around a quarter of all 5-years-old have tooth decay. It is the number one reason why children are admitted to hospital for a general anaesthetic.

We are passionate about providing free educational programmes for teachers, parents and carers, so that children can have the very best platform for a healthier mouth.

Giving people access to help and support

We care about your oral health.

Our Dental Helpline exists to help anybody who needs support and advice about their oral health. So far we have helped more than 400,000 people who have reached out to us. A donation to the Oral Health Foundation would allow the Dental Helpline to continue helping those who need support.

By making a donation you will help give somebody back their smile
