National Smile Month – Special OFFER!

Taunton based company, Confident Orthodontics, are celebrating National Smile Month with a promise of free teeth whitening for people booking orthodontic treatment during this month.

“Teeth and smiles are rated the second most important attraction feature, after personality, and the most important body feature surveyed (including body shape, height, hair, face and eyes). In contrast, nearly half the population are unhappy with their teeth (48%) and the figure is even higher for discoloured teeth (64%). This is why we have opted for this offer,” said Helen Griffiths, Orthodontic Consultant at Confident Orthodontics.

The practice, based at Bridge Street, Taunton has seen a massive increase in requests for this treatment in the 18months that they have been open.

“Collectively, we have been in practice for over 30 years and this treatment has always been popular, but never more so than now and when you hear stats like this published by the British Dental Health Foundation you can see why. A confident healthy looking smile changes how people view you and this is borne out by this research.”

National Smile Month runs from May 18 – June 18 and has been going for nearly 40 years. In that time it has raised awareness about the importance of dental health in a fun and proactive way. There are competitions and fun quizzes available for children from their website http://www.nationalsmilemonth.org/ and practitioners all over the country are entering into the spirit of the drive to raise our nation’s awareness of the importance of good dental care –  after all  it takes 43 muscles to frown but only 17 to smile!
