Summary
Be proud of your mouth for a lifetime of smiles!

Oral diseases affect around four billion people around the globe, according to the FDI World Dental Federation. This day is to spread awareness about that fact and the preventable measures people can take to keep their teeth and mouths in good health.

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.  

World Oral Health Day is an initiative of FDI World Dental Federation; an organization that brings together the world of dentistry with the aim of achieving optimal oral health  for everyone.
