World Oral Health Day

Your mouth is amazing! It helps you to eat, speak and smile confidently to enjoy life,to look after your oral health and inspire others to do the same.

WOHD is celebrated on 20 March every year; the day was first declared by FDI in 2007 and first officially celebrated in 2013. It is the culmination of a year-long campaign dedicated to raising global awareness on the prevention and control of oral diseases. It is an international day to promote good oral health for everyone and empower individuals to maintain a healthy mouth at all ages.

Why celebrate World Oral Health Day?

Most people will suffer from an oral condition in their lifetimes. Many of these conditions can be avoided with increased awareness, support, and funding for prevention, detection and treatment programmes, which is what World Oral Health Day is all about.
