National Smile Month is coming to Saddleworth as Apollonia House at Grasscroft will be holding a special event to back the UK’s biggest oral health campaign.
Taking place from 16 May to 16 June, National Smile Month aims to promote and raise awareness of good oral health, and Apollonia House is getting involved in doing just that.
To show their support, the team from Apollonia House are encouraging parents to bring their children along during half term from Tuesday 31 May to Friday 3 June.
The team will be putting the smile into National Smile Month by giving out goody bags and balloons and making their visit a fun one.
Children will also have the opportunity to enter in a drawing competition to win a children’s Sonicare toothbrush.
Natalie Bennett from Apollonia House said: “We love taking part in National Smile Month. That is why we are promoting it during half term.
“If you are a patient or simply want to talk to a member of staff about your oral health, pop down. It’s going to be a lot of fun.
“Good oral health is vital for a healthy smile as well as a healthy body, and we’ll be spreading that message at during the week.”
Chief Executive of the Oral Health Foundation, Dr Nigel Carter OBE said: “I’m delighted Apollonia House has joined the thousands of organisations in engaging with National Smile Month.
“It is a great reflection of local community spirit and an excellent way to promote good oral health.
“By making an event as fun and imaginative as possible, we hope it will inspire more people to join in the fun than ever before while delivering the Oral Health Foundation’s three key messages for good oral health; brush for two minutes twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks and visit the dentist regularly, as often as they recommend.”
