My Smile Bedfordshire

Welcome to the My Smile Award programme.

My Smile is an accreditation awarded to early years settings that implement the four steps of the award. These create a tooth friendly environment for young children, helping to protect their oral health.

The award supports daily toothbrushing on site, ensures that snacks and drinks provided are tooth friendly and encourages families to visit the dentist regularly.

Targeted settings across Bedford and Central Bedfordshire are invited to take part in the award each year and the accreditation is valid for two years.

If you have registered and are already part of the award, you will find documents to help you on the downloads page.

And introducing…Let’s Brush

Let’s Brush supports targeted early years settings with daily toothbrushing on site, which is an evidence based oral health intervention with lots of benefits:
* Improved brushing technique
* More compliance when cleaning teeth at home
* An additional brushing to the two times at at home
* Reinforcement of the habit
* It’s a fun shared activity that the children love doing!

Full training and equipment is provided to invited settings, as well as ongoing support.
