The aim of Project Smile is to reach out to local communities and emphasis the importance of oral hygiene.

Dental Scotland is embarking on a journey to reach as many kids as possible.

A Dental Scotland spokesperson said: “It was important for us to reach out to Primary 7 children as they are at an age where they are beginning to go through changes.

“These talks allowed us to remind them that no matter what age you are its important to brush your teeth regularly.

“We were amazed by how engaged the kids were which gives us confidence that our message about the importance of oral hygiene is getting through.”
