World Oral health day

From 2013, World Oral Health Day will be celebrated on 20 March. The original date of 12 September was moved following a decision made in Hong Kong by the World Dental Federation (FDI) congress.

The aim of the day is to increase the awareness of oral health, oral diseases and their link with general health and well-being. If you have an idea that you would like to turn into a community activity to celebrate World Oral Health Day check out www.healthysmiles.org.nz as there is funding available.

If you would like to share details about your World Oral Health day activities, on our website or in our panui, please contact
