World Oral Hygiene Day 2019
Millions of people around the globe continue to suffer from poor oral health and the growing burden of oral disease demands action on an individual, family and community level. Poor oral health extends far beyond the mouth, taking a serious toll on an individual’s overall health and well-being. Oral Hygiene Day is celebrated to commemorate the birth day of Govind B. Shankwalkar, the first periodontist in India. However, BIDS is confident that concerted, targeted action can curb the prevalence of oral disease and make oral health a personal priority for everyone.
The OHD 2019 campaign provides an ideal platform to raise awareness and encourage action in favor of good oral health. By leveraging thoughtfully coordinated efforts at local, national and global levels, the voice of the oral health community can be amplified.
