World Oral Health Day (WOHD) is celebrated globally every year on 20 March. It is organized by FDI World Dental Federation and is the largest global awareness campaign on oral health.
WOHD spreads messages about good oral hygiene practices to adults and children alike and demonstrates the importance of optimal oral health in maintaining general health and well-being.
The official theme of the 2019 WOHD campaign is ‘Say Ahh: Act on Mouth Health’. With this campaign, FDI calls on individuals to take tangible action to protect their oral health.
Millions of people around the globe continue to suffer from poor oral health and the growing burden of oral disease demands action on an individual, family and community level. Poor oral health extends far beyond the mouth, taking a serious toll on an individual’s overall health and well-being. However, FDI is confident that concerted, targeted action can curb the prevalence of oral disease and make oral health a personal priority for everyone.
International Day of Happiness
It’s a day to be happy, of course! Since 2013, the United Nations has celebrated as a way to recognize the importance of happiness in the lives of people around the world. In 2015, the UN launched the 17 Sustainable Development Goals that seek to end poverty, reduce inequality, and protect our planet – three key aspects that lead to well-being and happiness.
These both events are celebrated today at our clinic by spreading happiness with disease free oral health.
