World Oral Health Day

Get ready for World Oral Health Day 2022 campaign

Be Proud of Your Mouth for your happiness and well-being.

It’s that time of the year: FDI is Proud to announce that the World Oral Health Day campaign is ready to kick-off and encourages all of you to get involved. 

Be Proud of your Mouth

On World Oral Health Day 2022, we are asking everyone to take meaningful action to help end the neglect of global oral health.

This year, help us spread the word to encourage as many people as possible to look after their mouth and protect their quality of life. Because an unhealthy mouth not only impacts general health but it can have a severe impact on people’s emotional, social, mental, and overall physical well-being; and that’s why we are calling on people to Be Proud of their Mouth for their happiness and well-being.

There’s five months left until March 2022, but plenty of activities that oral healthcare professionals, students, schools, youth groups and people of all ages can start planning to engage local communities. 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!
