Hello, and a warm welcome to the June 2015 edition of the British Dental Health Foundation’s Word of Mouth digital magazine.

As a charity dedicated to improving the nation’s oral health, the whole team at the British Dental Health Foundation has been delighted by the support shown for National Smile Month.

A record number of you have backed the campaign this year, holding dedicated oral health events and communicating positive oral health messages to millions of people.  Your support is truly valued.  As a small, independent charity, much of our work would simply not be possible without the commitment of those who are passionate about raising awareness of oral health and wellbeing, so thank you.

Of course, National Smile Month is all about delivering positive messages to those who need it most, but it’s also about having loads of fun!  Throughout the month we have been inundated with your Smiley selfies – please keep sending them in using #mysmileyselfie – they have been a great source of entertainment while helping to raise awareness of the campaign online.

Throughout June’s issue, we have more National Smile Month updates and we report on some of the findings from our campaign survey, the results of which have certainly raised a few eyebrows.

We recap some of your best National Smile Month social media efforts, have a special article written by Dr Sharif Islam, and as this is a digital magazine, we have also uploaded just a few of the many radio broadcasts we have done as part of the campaign.

From everybody at the British Dental Health Foundation, thank you for your support during the campaign.  Keep it coming, as there is still a few more days to go.  It’s already been the most successful National Smile Month we have ever done but there’s no reason to stop there!
