The official theme of the 2019 World Oral Health Day (WOHD) campaign is ‘Say Ahh: Act on Mouth Health’.
‘Say Ahh: Act on Mouth Health’ motivates individuals to take charge of their own oral health by taking specific action to prevent oral disease and safeguard their overall health.
It is an international day to celebrate the benefits of a healthy mouth and to promote worldwide awareness of the issues around oral health and the importance of oral hygiene to looking after everyone old and young.
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.
