World Cavity-Free Future Day 2020

World Cavity-Free Future Day is a global awareness day, first launched by the ACFF in 2016, taking place on 14th October every year.

WCFF Day Infographic

Last year, WCFFDay focused on the oral health of infants. We’re focusing on raising awareness of caries as a disease across the life course this World Cavity-Free Future Day to reach a global audience of all ages. Caries affects us differently at each stage of life and this year, we hope to open up a dialogue through a video competition campaign called Smiles Across Generations, for which we are hoping to collect 30-second submissions from audiences across the globe to raise awareness on how we can achieve a cavity-free future. The winners of the competition will be announced on World Cavity-Free Future Day.
