Happy World Oral Health Day!
Each year on March 20, the FDI World Health Federation advocates for better oral health for all people around the globe with World Oral Health Day. The 3-year theme—launched in 2021—is “Be Proud of Your Mouth.” Its focus is to encourage people to take care of their oral health as part of maintaining personal happiness and well-being. FDI hopes to encourage individuals to make oral health a priority, motivate schools and youth groups to deliver learning activities about oral health, support oral health and medical professionals in educating their patients on oral health, and advocate for governments and policymakers to champion better oral health for their citizens. Oral health professionals and patients alike can download the campaign’s social media filter to highlight their smiles in their profile pictures with the hashtag: #mouthproudchallenge.
