British Dental Health Foundation
The British Dental Health Foundation (BDHF) is one of the World's leading independent oral health charities. It is headquartered in the United Kingdom and aims to help the public improve their oral health and hygiene through a range of activities run under the name of the British Dental Health Foundation name in the UK, and the International Dental Health Foundation globally.
Amongst other activities, the Foundation runs oral heath events. In the United Kingdom National Smile Month is wholly owned and run by the Foundation and is probably the largest dental health education event in Europe, and possibly the world. It is supported via sponsorship by some of the world's leading Brand names, who, together with a range of other partners imcluding the media, Government departments, PCTs and individual Dental Practices, make National Smile Month the success that it is. The Foundation also organises and co-ordinates Mouth Cancer Awareness Week in November annually.
In recent years the International activities of the Foundation have increased significantly. There are plans to "export" the success of National Smile Month to other Countries and because the Foundation has over 35 years of growth and success as a "not-for-profit" charitable institution, its advice, educational materials and history make it uniquely qualified to act as a supporting partner to commercial businesses, Governments and Institutions.
The Foundation is responsible for probably the largest Dental product Accreditation scheme in the World, covering 150 Products in over 50 Countries. It is a "Claims-based" scheme and Approved Products are awarded the British or International version of the famous Smiley-face logo which may displayed on packaging to help inform and advise the public .
The Chief Executive of both the British and International Dental Health Foundation is Nigel Carter and Simon Howell is Director of Campaigns for both the British and International Dental Health Foundations.
