This spotlight is on dental care.

National Smile Month is the UK’s largest and longest-running campaign to promote good oral health. In 2022 the campaign takes place between 16 May and 16 June and it highlights three key messages which will help us develop and maintain a healthy mouth:

  1. Brush your teeth last thing at night and on at least one other occasion with a fluoride toothpaste
  2. Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks
  3. Visit your dentist regularly, as often as they recommend.

Find dentists services near you, showing contact details, customer ratings, and whether a practice is accepting new NHS patients.

The Peninsula Dental School's Dental Education Facility in Veysey Close, Exeter, is not currently recruiting patients. In state-of-the-art dental clinical facilities, this school is where student dental carers (dentists, dental nurses, hygienists and therapists) are trained to the highest standards while providing free treatment to NHS patients. They also deliver community outreach programmes such as supervised teeth-brushing for young children.
