‘Smiliest’ time of the week revealed in new survey

Five o’clock has been revealed as the ‘smiliest’ time of the week in a new survey

The ‘smiliest’ time of the week is five o’clock on a Friday, according to a new survey.

The Oral Health Foundation carried out a nationwide survey of more than 2,000 UK adults to find out when the most popular time to smile was to help raise awareness of National Smile Month.

Five o’clock was found to be the most popular, tailing off throughout the weekend to show seven o’clock on a Monday morning as the most ‘frowny’ time.

National Smile Month

The Oral Health Foundation is encouraging everyone to smile as much as possible during National Smile Month.

It is the 40th year of the campaign, which runs from 16 May – 16 June, aiming to raise awareness of the importance of everyone’s oral health.

‘A smile is an incredibly powerful tool and is worth remembering it is one we all possess; a simple smile can make others around you feel at ease, it’s highly contagious and plays such an important role in our lives that we should make our oral health top priority, it saddens us that not everyone has the confidence to show theirs off to its full potential,’ Dr Carter continued.

‘National Smile Month is a great opportunity for us to take a moment and think about our oral health and discover what we can do to improve it.’
