World Cavity-Free Future Day
World Cavity-Free Future Day 2022 – October 14th
Brushing your teeth with fluoride toothpaste is proven to be one of the most effective way to prevent cavities and tooth decay and recently the World Health Organisation (WHO) recognised fluoride toothpaste as an essential medicine. Despite this, some children and adults do not or cannot brush their teeth regularly.
For WCFFDay 2022 we focused on encouraging behavioural change around oral health and supported and motivated those that need it to brush their teeth and reduce intake of sugary foods. Encouraging behavioural change is important as oral healthcare professionals have the least amount of control over our oral health routine in between check-ups. Encouraging the right habits as early as possible is crucial to helping people maintain these healthy habits throughout the life course.
To support Chapters, volunteers and care teams, we created a series of free resources are available on this page below.
