What is World Oral Health Day?

World Oral Health Day (WOHD) is a far-reaching global oral health campaign. It is a platform for the public, oral health community, and policymakers to help reduce the overall oral disease burden.

WOHD is celebrated on 20 March every year; the day was first declared by FDI in 2007 and first officially celebrated in 2013. It is the culmination of a year-long campaign dedicated to raising global awareness on the prevention and control of oral diseases. It is an international day to promote good oral health for everyone and empower individuals to maintain a healthy mouth at all ages.
