National Smile Month

National Smile Month, an oral health education campaign, will be held May 18 to June 17. 

For over thirty years the United Kingdom has celebrated National Smile Month.  This year, the United States, through a partnership between Oral Health America and the British Dental Health Foundation will also participate.  

The campaign promotes key oral health messages, and encourages participation at any level by dental practices, clinics, schools, medical practices, community centers, and others who would like to raise the profile of oral health.
