The 'Big Smile Big Band' event was the University of Glasgow Dental School’s contribution to the UK Oral Health Foundation's annual National Smile Month campaign. The event brought together 756 participants to complete the World's Biggest Smile and successfully claimed a Guinness World Record.

Dr Will McLean, one of the organising committee members (pictured left receiving their award) said: “The Big Smile Big Band team are honoured to have been named as winners in this strongly contended category. It has been a real pleasure to have celebrated National Smile Month with a “Big Smile” and show that people make Glasgow smile!”
