World Oral Health Day
Oral diseases are a major health concern for many countries and negatively impact people throughout their lives. Oral diseases lead to pain and discomfort, social isolation, loss of self-confidence, and are often linked to health-related issues.
World Oral Health Day celebrated on 20th March every year empowers people with the knowledge, tools and confidence to secure good oral health. The world oral health day is celebrated to educate people on the importance of adopting a good oral hygiene routine and mitigating risk factors such as unhealthy eating and smoking, among other contributors to poor oral health.
To inspire change by focusing on the importance of oral health for overall health for the next three years the theme sends out a simple but powerful message “Be Proud Of Your Mouth”. The adoption of this theme is hoped to motivate people to value and take care of their mouths and understand that by doing so, they can also help protect their general health and well-being.
