And last, but not least, World Oral Health Day (WOHD) is March 20, and is celebrated every year on the same day. It is an international day to highlight the benefits of a healthy mouth and promote worldwide awareness of issues around oral health and the importance to everyone old and young of looking after oral hygiene.(7) The theme is “World Oral Health Day 2014, Celebrating healthy smiles” because having a healthy mouth is cause for celebration!(7)
As the World Oral Health Day approaches, Oral-B, Procter & Gamble, has started a Sharing Smiles campaign structured ultimately to reach disadvantaged communities that cannot afford dental care products and consultations with dentists.(8) As part of the ways to celebrate the World Oral Health Day on March 20, 2014, and in commitment to total oral health, the campaign is targeted at providing free dental services through Oral B’s Mobile Dental Clinic (MDC) to people who ordinarily cannot afford the service. The campaign kicked off on Jan. 30, 2014.
