Com­muters given a smile

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - 24 -

TRAIN users were left with bright smiles on their faces thanks to a fun ini­tia­tive by a den­tal clinic.

To mark Na­tional Smile Month, which ran from May 16 to June 16, mem­bers of The Orange Pep­per Clinic, based in Winslow Road, Nether­ton, vis­ited Peter­bor­ough Rail­way Sta­tion to give pas­sen­gers ad­vice on brush­ing teeth and den­tal health.

This year’s Na­tional Smile Month fo­cused on the Bri­tish Den­tal Health Foun­da­tion’s key mes­sages: brush twice-a-day with flu­o­ride tooth­paste, cut down on how of­ten you have sug­ary foods and drinks, and visit the den­tist reg­u­larly.

Dr Nigel Carter, chief ex­ec­u­tive of the foun­da­tion which or­gan­ises Na­tional Smile Month, said: “By pro­mot­ing good oral health­care in a fun and imag­i­na­tive way, we hope to per­suade more peo­ple of the im­por­tance of tak­ing care of their teeth.”
