This year’s First Smiles campaign, run by the British Society of Dental Hygiene and Therapy (BSDHT) and sponsored by Oral-B and Brushlink, needs you to get involved!

Whether you arrange to visit the local school or nursery, or partake in events designed for parents and guardians, it’s a great opportunity to engage with the local community and spread the word on how important oral health is for young people.

Some of last year’s participants said:

“The First Smiles day was super and we all had a great time. The kids dressed up in gloves and masks, we talked about looking after our teeth, visiting the dentist and sugars in food.”Kate Paddock

“It all went really well and we really enjoyed our visit to the nursery. We tried to make it as enjoyable and interactive as possible. We did role play and got each child to have a go at brushing – this was a great success.” – Anita Hirani

 “The feedback I had from parents was lovely and some of the children that hadn’t been to the dentist before were asking their parents to take them – in fact the children were really enthusiastic and very motivated. This is a fantastic opportunity for our dental profession to get out there and keep our kids smiling.” Joanne Martin
