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 want to focus on encouraging behavioural change around oral health and to support and motivate those that need it 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 will be creating a series of free resources that will be available on this page. Keep an eye for news of them in the future.
