Message from our President (2 April 2014)

PresidentCongratulations for a hugely successful World Oral Health Day 2014
Dr Tin Chun Wong, FDI President

Congratulations to national dental associations, student groups and other organizers of special events in the over 100 countries where World Oral Health Day 2014 was celebrated on 20 March. It was a huge success, directly touching the lives of thousands of people in over 100 countries all over the world. Its message of ‘celebrating healthy smiles’ reached some of the most remote parts of the planet. Its impact is likely to be felt by millions as the message radiates out on the internet and the social media. World Oral Health Day is important because 90% of the world’s population will suffer from oral diseases in their lifetime.

FDI itself took part directly through events on three continents: first, in Asia, where I addressed events in Thailand and Myanmar and FDI President-Elect Dr Patrick Hescot spoke to audiences and attended special celebrations in Vietnam. Then, in Europe, where, at a special press event in London, FDI launched a White Paper on Global Oral Health, a children’s book entitled ‘The Tooth Thief’ and a short video of Ivoirian footballer Yaya Touré promoting oral health.

Finally, on the American continent, where the Yaya Touré video was broadcast throughout World Oral Health Day on the screen outside the NASDAQ Stock Exchange in New York City. Football is a truly worldwide sport that touches all strata of society; footballers speak to everyone, wherever they are. It was therefore particularly apt to have a renowned footballer communicate our message of ‘celebrating healthy smiles’. Read more ...
