The Smiley

Smiley2016A smile. It’s one of the most powerful and emotive gestures we can do.  Smiling shows confidence and has been proved to have a positive effect on our relationships, careers and overall image.

It’s so simple, yet so many people just don’t do it, often caused by poor oral hygiene over the years.

With our Smiley, you will find it impossible not to smile behind it.  Around half a million of you have used them over the last few years.  It’s fun, and it’s educational too.

Each Smiley carries our three key messages for good oral health.  If you still don’t know what they are, here’s a quick reminder:

  • Brush your teeth last thing at night and on at least one other occasion with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks.
  • Visit your dentist regularly, as often as they recommend.

Poor oral health can be both physically painful and psychologically damaging. It can affect self-confidence, image and even how we are perceived by other people.  From the many interesting studies into laughter millions of people may also be missing out on the positive benefits of smiling and having fun. The Smiley is a great opportunity to take a moment to think about your oral health, and more importantly how you can improve it.

Our Smileys our available in our shop.  A pack of ten costs only £1.75, with the proceeds going towards a great cause. Please help support the campaign by putting a smile(y) on your face!
