National Smile Month 2015

National Smile month is an annual event to raise awareness about dental issues in the general population. As dentists in Colchester, Hello Dental we are going to be doing our bit locally over the next four weeks.

More so then ever there is a need for increased awareness of dental disease, with tooth decay being the number one cause for children in the UK requiring hospitalisation and general anaesthetic for extractions. Not only does this cause a significant amount of distress to the children involved but the real tragedy of it is that most of this disease is preventable. A major population based impact can only be made by a sustained oral health promotion and prevention campaign, tied with affirmative action to tackle some food manufacturer’s unscrupulous practices that are putting profits before health.

Education and making some simple changes can mean most dental disease is preventable.

At Hello Dental Colchester we will be putting up a series of blog posts here with one simple aim… clear accessible information to help you prevent dental problems.

We will also be running some special offers for the month with an emphasis on prevention which we will be highlighting on our website here and our facebook page.
