BSDHT Launch First Smiles 2019!

The British Society of Dental Hygiene and Therapy (BSDHT) is delighted to launch this year’s First Smiles campaign, which will be held on Friday 14th June 2019 in partnership with Oral-B.

The campaign aims to:

  • Build essential relationships between nurseries, schools and their local dental practices
  • Educate children and those who care for them about the fundamental aspects of good oral health
  • Improve the oral hygiene habits of children across the UK
  • Make children feel more comfortable about visiting a dental practice
  • Integrate oral hygiene within health education in schools
  • Tackle the worrying rise in tooth decay and extractions among children in the UK

It’s so easy to get involved – there are various materials available for free on the BSDHT website, including letter templates to send to local schools and nurseries, as well as a FAQs page and ideas on what you could cover. Plus, there will be free goodies available to take with you courtesy of our partnership with Oral-B. For further information, click here or call or email us - 01788 575050/
