SMILE…June Is National Smile Month!
Bet You Didn’t Know June Is National Smile Month
Smiles are free, they’re contagious, relieve stress, boost our immune systems, and smiling considered is a universal sign of happiness.
As if we need another reason to smile more?
Along with ringing in Summer, schools letting out – there’s a reason for several million smiles across the country right there – June also brings us another dental-centric month-long celebration of…wait for it…
National Smile Month!
According to NationalSmileMonth.org:
Originally known as National Smile Week, this smile-centric annual celebration was first started in the United Kingdom more than 30 years ago by the British Dental Health Foundation (BDHF).
In 1977, the Oral Health Foundation (then the British Dental Health Foundation) aimed to address an increasingly critical problem of how to get people to look after their teeth in a time when only one in three people had their natural teeth.
The project focused on the concept of preventative dentistry – a dramatically reformed outlook on oral healthcare at the time but one which 40 years on is seen as standard practice.
Makes sense, since an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
In 2009, National Smile Month was celebrated internationally for the first time when the BDHF and its international arm partnered with Oral Health America to bring the event to the United States.
Wayne NJ Dentist Shares The National Smile Month Message
No matter how many times we hear it, we still need to hear it; oral health is an integral part of overall health.
So let us use times like these to devote some extra special attention both to our own oral (and overall) health, and that of our friends & family members.
Most likely all of us know someone who could use a little smile shape up, don’t let them go another day dealing with the detrimental effects an unhealthy smile can bring – not only to our teeth and gums, but to our entire bodies as well.

It doesn’t matter what corner of the world we live in, there are special events commemorating National Smile Month happening all over the country.
For our Wayne NJ dentist office, we’re happy to offer all new patients significant savings on both preventative dental care & cosmetic dentistry to shape-up their Summer smiles!
Whether it’s a fancy new set of porcelain veneers that would make Ron Burgundy green with envy, or simply just a garden variety dental exam, or FREE 2nd Opinion, there are plenty of money-saving options to take care of your smile.
REMINDER: School is almost out for summer which means 1/2 of this year is almost gone….so in order to maximize your dental insurance benefits of 2 cleanings per year, please call us and we will schedule for you!
Celebrate National Smile Month
We know June is all about Dads and Grads, but Fudgie the Whale, a new Trapper Keeper, and horrible looking ties have nothing on optimal oral health.
Let us make our world a better place this June…one smile at a time!
