For May, we have a jam-packed issue for you as National Smile Month has finally arrived, and we are pleased to see such wonderful support for the campaign once again.
To start off the issue we have a picture-special from for the launch of National Smile Month. We were joined by sponsors and avid supporters of the campaign.
Some familiar friends and a few new faces but ultimately all were welcome.
This is a time of the year where our charity really pushes to make a positive impact across the nation and with your support throughout the campaign, together we can take a huge step forward towards achieving that.
In other news, a new nationwide campaign finds that many Brits are being made to feel anxious about how their smile looks. We give advice on how to put a stop to this and why your smile is too important to remain hidden.
Also in this edition, you can find articles on #habits4life, putting a stop to gum disease, our very first winner of Nominate a Smile and much more around National Smile Month especially.
