National Smile Month

It’s National Smile Month!

We smile when we’re happy – but did you know that smiling can also make you happy? Using the muscles of the face to smile triggers the release of happy hormones called endorphins, which means if your patients are in pain or self-conscious about their teeth, they’re actually likely to be less happy! During National Smile Month (May 13-June 13), thousands of organisations will come together to promote the key messages around oral health – that means dentists, schools, community groups and pharmacies working together to give more people reasons to smile. Why not see if there’s an initiative in your area you can get on board with – or better still, plan your own?
