Poor oral health affects nearly 3.5 billion people worldwide with far-reaching consequences: an unhealthy mouth can cause significant pain and suffering, and lead to an impaired quality of life. Under its three-year “Be Proud of Your Mouth” campaign theme, we hope to motivate people to value and take care of their mouths and understand that in doing so, they also help protect their happiness and well-being. Because the goal of a happy life unites us all.
‘’Everyone can take personal action this World Oral Health Day to help start a new trend for the sake of happiness and well-being’’ says FDI President, Prof. Ihsane Ben Yahya. ‘’Let’s come together on a global scale to raise awareness, improve education and spur personal and collective action on the importance of oral health for all.’’
