World Oral Health Day ideas – and success in South East Asia, strides forward in Africa
Dr Tin Chun Wong, FDI President

World Oral Health Day is fast approaching and I would like to take the opportunity to encourage all national dental associations, dental students and other partners to get the ‘Smile for Life’ message across by joining in the celebrations and organizing their own local, regional or national awareness raising event.

FDI has also developed an application to allow people to feature in their own World Oral Health Day campaign: please share the message among your colleagues and friends by creating your own banner to share over the social media – or by creating your own poster to hang in your reception area or dental surgery and sensitize visitors and patients to the World Oral Health Day message.

‘Prevention is better than cure’ is an old saying: let’s bring it up-to-date yet again on 20 March, World Oral Health Day 2015.
