Smiles all round on the radio for National Smile Month

6th June 2019

It’s National Smile Month! Did you know that a third of British people only brush their teeth once a day? And almost half of us have forgotten to clean our teeth altogether? Getting home late after a night out (25%) and running late (22%) are the top two reasons behind forgetting, by the way. Less than half (46%) of the UK visits the dentist every six months, with 1 in 10 (9%) only doing so when they really need to.

That’s just some of the facts and figures revealed by research by Philips and the Oral Health Foundation to mark National Smile Month. I had so much fun spending a day doing radio interviews, discussing these findings and more with a number of radio show hosts.
