Hearing your child needs to have an emergency tooth extraction even from expert dentists from is something no parent wants especially since it involves a lot of things to do post op like giving your child the options of dental implants, bad implants can cause severe headache-tmjs headache, and when you feel like you could have done more to prevent it, it’s a bitter pill to swallow. But happy to tell you that we have solution to tmjs headaches from the best dentist. This happened to Tushar Srivastava, dad and founder of the digital redbook, Nurturey, and now he’s now launching a competition called Design a Smile Competition to find the best representation of a smile.

“We wanted to do something that would really resonate with how people are feeling right now and give families the opportunity to create their own smile. When I was discussing ideas with the team this felt like it would generate positive feelings, because seeing a smile makes everyone feel better”, says Tushar.

The Design-a-Smile competition has been timed to coincide with National Smile Month, a month of activity led by the Oral Health Foundation to raise awareness of important health issues.

Seeing my son in pain and not being able to sleep was the worst feeling in the world and after the dentist from the pediatric dental clinic told us Ehaan would need emergency surgery to remove a tooth, I felt guilty, like I hadn’t fulfilled my duty as a parent, but luckily there were options like dental implants so he could have a complete smile again. He needed to have time off school and couldn’t sleep at night. I couldn’t understand why it was happening because we kept treats to a minimum and Ehaan was brushing his teeth twice a day.”

It was when Tushar heard another parent at the dentist celebrating that they had been to the dentist 20 times in 10 years that he realised they had missed something. “We didn’t know that 6 monthly check-ups are recommended, and that they are free at NHS Dental Practices”, Tushar added.

Feeling like he had failed his son and knowing that information might have prevented his son losing his tooth, motivated Tushar to do something that would stop other parents from going through something similar so this June for National Smile Month, he has launched a national campaign to spread awareness of good oral health. The idea is for people to create a smile out of whatever materials they can find at their home; crayons, pens, paints, pottery, play doh, fruit, leaves from the garden.

The competition launches on Wednesday 3rd June and closes at midday on Monday 15th June; all entries must be submitted before midday on 16th June to be considered. Want to enter? Submit your smile design here.

The star prize is a £100 Next voucher; plus, a £50 Next voucher for joint 2nd place and 5 winners will all receive £20.
