Message from our President (25 November 2014)

President2An upbeat message for an upbeat campaign
Dr Tin Chun Wong, FDI President

I have delivered an upbeat message for the launch of the official campaign for World Oral Health Day 2015 under the theme ‘Smile for Life’. You can view it online at [online address]. Readers will recall that the ‘Smile for Life’ campaign was first unveiled for members during the National Liaison Officer Forum at the 2014 World Annual Dental Congress in New Delhi. We are particularly excited about World Oral Health Day 2015 and its message that resonates so well with current FDI priorities,

It is also a happy coincidence that WOHD 2015, 20 March, takes place just a few days after the Japan Dental Association’s ‘Dental care and oral health for healthy longevity in an aging society’ to take place in Tokyo from 13 to 15 March, co-sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO) and supported by FDI, two Japanese ministries and a number of national, health-related organizations.

The proximity of the two events should allow us to focus special attention on the concept of lifelong strong teeth and sound gums. I have been invited to address the congress opening on day 1 and will certainly introduce the theme of prevention as a means to oral health throughout life.
