Designed to Smile improves children’s oral health by 12%, 30/03/17 [W]

Following the Design to Smile campaign, launched in 2008, tooth decay in 5 year olds in Wales has declined by 12%.

The Designed to Smile programme has worked with over 95,000 children, encouraging them to regularly brush their teeth. Following its success, Designed to Smile will now be re-focused to target even younger children. The shift in working with under 5’s follows the latest research into oral health which highlighted the importance of early prevention, showing that this has the greatest impact.
