PENKRIDGE dental workers are getting out of the surgery to spread smiles tomorrow.
National Smile Month began last week and the Priors Dental Practice in Pinfold Lane will be sharing oral health advice with villagers who want to keep their own grins in great condition.
The team will be meeting communuters at Penkridge train station from 8am to 9am, shoppers at the Co-op supermarket from 9am to 11am and between 11am and 1pm they hope to be outside Jasper’s Bakery.
Throughout the day they will be will be handing out free education information, as well as stickers and balloons for children.
Principal dentist Mark Emms said: “We are looking forward to helping even more people learn about how to keep their mouth healthy as part of National Smile Month.
“At The Priors we very much believe in preventative dentistry and the Smile campaign is crucial to helping more people understand the importance of good oral health. This means regular visits to the dentist for dental health checks and regular visits to the dental hygienist in order to check on gums, and overall hygiene in your mouth.
“We have seen a definite increase in people who want to improve their smile. Wherever possible we work with our patients on a long-term care plan that focuses as much on preventing decay and restoring damage to existing teeth, as it does on straightening, whitening or replacing them when the time comes.”
