Grab a giant toothbrush and get brushing in this hands-on exhibition exploring the fascinating world inside our mouths. Keeping Britain Smiling is a free exhibition for young people designed to engage and entertain, whilst providing mind boggling facts about the fascinating world of your mouth.
The exhibition explores the anatomy of the mouth, how we use it and how to take care of teeth and gums to maintain a bright and healthy smile. You can also discover the surprising history of dentistry and dental hygiene and explore some of the exciting innovations under investigation for the future.
The exhibition is part of Colgate’s Keeping Britain Smiling campaign. With the current rise of tooth decay amongst children in the UK, Colgate hopes the exhibition will inspire young people to start taking better care of their teeth, developing habits that they will take with them and maintain throughout adult life.
Keeping Britain Smiling is open to the public from 30th June to 8th July at WestQuay Shopping Centre, Southampton. The exhibition offers a fun and educational experience for school classes and the whole family.
Keeping Britain Smiling is a 150sqm touring exhibition travelling to science centres and shopping malls throughout Britain. The exhibition was commissioned by Colgate Palmolive and designed and manufactured by KCA London.
The exhibition is part of a wider Keeping Britain Smiling campaign by Colgate. Tooth decay amongst children in the UK is rising steeply and Colgate hopes that by using this exhibition to bring to life just how important your mouth, teeth and gums are that it will reinforce the importance of taking good care of your teeth.
