In time for Smile Month, we have been celebrating that we’re the local authority that’s made the biggest improvement in Greater Manchester. The survey measured the levels of dental decay in Oldham’s five year olds and showed that children’s oral health has improved by 16.1% since 2014.

Keep up the good work by:

  • Brushing your teeth last thing at night and on at least one other occasion with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Cutting down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks.
  • Visiting your dentist regularly, as often as they recommend.
