World Oral Health Day

World Oral Health Day

On the 20 March every year, The FDI World Dental Federation ask the world to unite to help reduce the burden of oral diseases, which affect individuals, health systems and economies everywhere.

Its purpose: to empower people with the knowledge, tools and confidence to secure good oral health.

 In 2023, we will focus on the importance of caring for your mouth at every stage of life.

Why is World Oral Health Day important?

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, and loss of self-confidence, and they are often linked to other serious health issues. And yet, there is no reason to suffer: most oral health conditions are largely preventable and can be treated in their early stages.  Find out more
