Join us in supporting our Brighter Smiles campaign and help us prevent tooth decay and make a sustainable difference to local children across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Our activities are a fun way of embedding good oral health from an early age and delivering sound advice about the best oral health regimes for a sustainable future of bright, confident and healthy smiles. If you can help us identify a generous supporter to fund the delivery of Brighter Smiles in your community, please contact us.
We love working with other dental professionals who share our ‘prevention is better than cure’ outlook and, like us, care deeply about the oral health of children in their local community and the younger generation. In some cases, their dental nurses have undertaken training with us and joined our bank of volunteers to deliver the campaign in local schools. In other cases dental students have helped us deliver oral health education, thus adding to their skills and experience. If you would like to discuss supporting Brighter Smiles by offering your services, please get in touch, we’d be delighted to hear from you, but please note that due to the pandemic we are currently restricted in what we can offer.

We seek a minimum three-year commitment so that together we make a lasting difference to the oral health of a local community.
In return we provide a range of mutually beneficial opportunities for our supporters who benefit from:
