Delivered by Smile Together in partnership with The Fishermen’s Mission, Seafarers Hospital Society and Healthy Cornwall, funded by Seafarers UK as part of the national SeaFit Programme


We’re teaming up to offer fishermen and their dependent family members:

• A free check-up

• Immediate dental treatment

• Oral cancer screening

• Subsidised further treatment as recommended by our dentist on the day


In some locations there will also be free NHS Health Checks available from Healthy Cornwall measuring a person’s height, weight, body mass index, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as looking at various lifestyle behaviours such as healthy eating, physical activity, smoking and alcohol consumption. All these factors are used to calculate the risk of developing heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease and dementia


Smiles At Sea 2019 locations and dates


In some locations we are linking up with our Brighter Smiles oral health team, taking the mobile dental unit further into our community and visiting schools and our new dental centre in Bodmin – an opportunity for local children, their families and other members of the community to pop along to see what we’re doing, have a look inside the dental unit and generally learn more about dental care.  These sessions will be at:
