Abbeymead Dental Centre celebrated National Smile Month in June with a competition for young children aimed at promoting good Oral Health among children.
The month long poster competition, intended to inspire budding artists to think about Oral Health issues, proved very popular, and was won by Holly Grammer, aged 9, whose entry was a poster entitled “How to Get Perfect Teeth”
The winning poster successfully captured the theme of the campaign, promoting the three main points;
1. Brushing for 2 minutes twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste
2. Cutting down on sugary food and drinks
3. Visiting the Dentist regularly
