Get involved in Dental Health Week 2018

It's time to start thinking about Dental Health Week (6-12 August). This year's theme is #watchyourmouth. What can your workplace, school or community group do to take part and raise awareness about dental health? We've got you covered with these healthy messages to promote, resources to use and ideas to share!

Focus on these key messages:
  • Brush twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Clean in between teeth at least once a day with floss or an interdental brush
  • Eat a healthy balance diet and limit sugar intake
  • Regularly visit the dentist for check-ups and preventive treatment.
Visit the Dental Health Week website for resources to help you with:
  • Planning and running an event
  • Promoting healthy messages
  • Info-sharing with interesting facts
  • Going social and getting some publicity
Don't have time to run your own event? Come to one of ours!
