Focused on children and community engagement, through the Bright Smiles, Bright Futures programme your practice can get involved and influence the oral health of the local population through evidence-based advice and guidance.
Engagement can be via a range of settings such as primary schools, nursery, Brownies, Cubs, local sports teams, or any other community group involving children.
The benefits of community spirit
Having the opportunity for your practice to participate in a community-based activity is also a great way of promoting your practice.
Community engagement activities also provide leadership opportunities for you and your team members to develop additional skills.
