Defacto are looking to reward the best smiles in the UK!
We want you to send in smiling selfies of you or your dental practice (if you work in one!) to win an amazing prize!
In conjunction with National Smile Month 2016, we thought we would run a little competition to raise awareness about oral health and spread some joy at the same time. A little bit about National Smile Month, taken from their website…
“The National Smile Month is the UK’s largest and longest-running campaign to promote good oral health.
Together, with thousands of individuals and organisations, National Smile Month highlights three key messages, all of which go a long way in helping us develop and maintain a healthy mouth. They are:
• Brush your teeth last thing at night and on at least one other occasion with fluoride toothpaste.
• Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks.
• Visit your dentist regularly, as often as they recommend.
The aim of National Smile Month is to ultimately improve the UK’s oral health. Organised by oral health charity, the Oral Health Foundation, the campaign hopes to raise awareness of important health issues, and make a positive difference to the oral health of millions.
And this year, the campaign celebrates a very special landmark… it’s 40th Birthday!”
National Smile Month is running between the 16th of May and the 16th of June and like the campaigners themselves we are encouraging anyone with good oral health to share it and boost positivity.
To enter all you have to do is take a smiling selfie, and share it through social media. Make sure to post it on our Facebook wall, tag us on Twitter and Instagram (using our handle @defactodentists) and be sure to use the hashtag #NationalSmileMonth.
You will be in the running to win a £50 voucher to use in a hair or beauty salon of your choice. That should put a smile on your face! The closing date of our competition will end with smile month on the 16th of June.
So get involved! Spread the message and be proud of your smile!
