3M becomes a World Oral Health Day supporter, affirms commitment to oral health for all

19 December 2018 World Oral Health Day

3M and FDI are strengthening their partnership to include support for the 2019 World Oral Health Day (WOHD) campaign. 

Celebrated on 20 March, WOHD is the largest global awareness campaign on oral health. It is an international day to promote good oral health for everyone and empower individuals to maintain a healthy mouth at all ages.

"3M Oral Care is excited to sponsor World Oral Health Day in 2019. There is no better way to live our mission of ‘lifelong oral health for everyone’ than by partnering with FDI to create awareness of the importance of oral health throughout the world."
Sebastian Arana, 3M Oral Care President & General Manager

3M already backs FDI’s advocacy work, which includes a push to integrate oral health in the global health and development agenda and highlight the contributions of dental professionals in maintaining general health, well-being and quality of life. 3M also supported the implementation of FDI’s Smile Around the World initiative in China in early 2018.

"World Oral Health Day unites the global community under a common aim: to reduce the burden of oral disease and ensure good oral health for all. I’m thrilled to welcome 3M to our circle of World Oral Health Day supporters. I look forward to strengthening our existing relationship to deliver a top-notch World Oral Health Day in 2019."
Dr Kathryn Kell, FDI President
