The upcoming National Smile Month campaign has been described by the British Dental Health Association as a great opportunity to educate young people about the importance of oral health.
Chief executive of the body Dr Nigel Carter stated the release of official figures show not enough children give consideration to their oral health and the event is a chance to change this.
He was commenting on the news that St Marie’s Catholic Primary School and Nursery in Rugby is taking part in the National Smile Month event.
The location has announced it is to have a dental theme for the day on Friday (March 30th) in order to mark the occasion.
“It’s fun and educational, so children, teachers and parents alike can learn something from it,” said Dr Carter.
The federation chief executive recently noted National Smile Month is a chance for colleges and schools in the UK to educate young people about oral health.
