Smile around the world
Project Smile Around the World
Partners Ivoclar Vivadent, Brazilian Association of Dental Surgeons (ABCD) and Indian Dental Association (IDA)
Objectives To raise awareness of oral health in disadvantaged rural and urban communities through cultural and educational programmes that directly involve and entertain. The rationale is that good oral hygiene learned at an early age will help ensure good oral health throughout the life-course.
Brief description

FDI World Dental Federation and Ivoclar Vivadent AG are joining forces in ‘Smile around the world’, a project to promote oral health and prevention among disadvantaged children with limited access to oral health care in Brazil and India.

‘Smile around the world’ is conceived as a participatory project involving dental teams, schoolteachers and schoolchildren. Dental teams selected by ABCD in Brazil or IDA in India will visit schools to raise teachers’ awareness of the importance of oral health and discuss with them how best to implement project components in a classroom setting.

'Smile around the world’ seeks to positively engage the children by involving them in the process through their own creative work so they both understand and participate in the oral health messages. The teacher-training component will ensure the long-term sustainability of the project.
