World Oral Health Day
March 20, 2024
World Oral Health Day is observed annually on March 20th. This global initiative aims to raise awareness about the importance of oral health and its impact on overall well-being. Organised by the FDI World Dental Federation, the day focuses on promoting good oral hygiene practices and encouraging preventive measures to reduce the prevalence of oral diseases.
World Oral Health Day emphasises the role of oral health in maintaining general health and preventing conditions such as gum disease, cavities, and oral cancers. The campaign encourages individuals to adopt proper oral care habits, including regular toothbrushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups.
Various activities take place on World Oral Health Day, including educational programs, community outreach, and awareness campaigns. The overarching goal is to empower individuals to take control of their oral health, promote access to dental care, and advocate for policies that prioritize oral health on a global scale.
