This year, World Oral Health Day want to inspire change by focusing on the importance of oral health for overall health, because good oral health can help you live a longer, healthier life.
World Oral Health Day (WOHD) is celebrated globally every year on 20 March. Its purpose: to empower people with the tools and knowledge to prevent and control oral diseases, which affect nearly 3.5 billion people worldwide. WOHD encourages people to look after their oral health by adopting a good oral hygiene routine and managing risk factors. Preserving oral health can help keep the mind and body healthy too, as well as protect against the spread of infections.
For the next three years, the overarching theme for the WOHD campaign is “Be Proud of Your Mouth.” With this empowering call to action, FDI hopes to motivate people to value and take care of their mouths and understand that by doing so, they can also help protect their general health and well-being.
Get ready to be #MouthProud—take pride in what your mouth can do for you. Value and take care of it to help you live a longer, healthier life.
