Competitions to make you smile

Taking place from 15 May to 15 June, the UK’s biggest oral health campaign aims to get as many people talking and thinking about oral health and what good practices can do. More people than ever before took part in last year’s campaign, and to go one step further in 2017, here are some reasons to get involved and get smiling.

Our Smiley Selfie competition is back, so get your smileys and your cameras at the ready for a chance to win four tickets to your local comedy club.

National Smile Month is 40 this year and to celebrate we’re having a birthday party, so we want to see your best celebratory smiley selfies!

All you have to do for a chance to win four tickets to laugh it up at your local comedy club is get your hands on some of our brand new Smileys, strike a celebratory pose and take your best selfie then upload it to Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using #mysmileyselfie. Easy peasy!

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

Three winners will be drawn at random at the end of National Smile Month, so get some of our brand new Smileys from the Smile Month shop now to give yourself a chance of winning.

A pack of 10 Smileys starts from only £1.75, with each Smiley containing our three key messages for good oral health.

Go on, give us a smiley.


This is your chance to share a special smile with everyone during National Smile Month.

Does someone you know always have a smile on their face? Do they light up a room every time they walk into it?

As part of National Smile Month 2017 we are giving you the opportunity to nominate someone who always raises a smile to receive the recognition they deserve.

It can be someone who has done something amazing in the community, gone above and beyond for a patient or a member of the public who brings smiles to everyone around them.

We want to hear about members of your team, the public, family members, someone from the community and patients – anybody who you want to nominate who always brightens up your day.

Throughout National Smile Month we will be selecting a winner each week, each winner will receive a special prize from us to help put a smile on their face.

How to nominate

Send a picture of your nominee alongside a brief description of why your nominee deserves to be one of the faces of National Smiles Month 2017.

We want to see a natural smile (no smileys please), send your entries to us at pr@dentalhealth.org

Or share your smile with us on Twitter and Facebook using #NominateASmile.

Go on, give us a smile.
