National Smile Month 2021

Supporting National Smile Month is important to St Helens wellbeing services because a healthy mouth means a healthy body.

Maintaining a healthy smile can be very difficult for some people, and over the past year during COVID-19 we have been snacking more often at home. 

This year’s campaign focus is to:
1. Visit your dentist regularly, as often as they recommend. Try to register children by the time they reach their first birthday.  NHS dental treatment is free for children under 18.
2. Brush your teeth last thing at night and on at least one other occasion with a fluoride toothpaste.
3. Cut down on how much sugary food and drink you have, and how often you have them. Try to keep sweet things to mealtimes.
