March 20, 2023
The celebration of World Oral Health Day takes place each year on the 20th of March. This social media campaign, created by FDI World Dental Federation, aims to raise awareness on the importance of oral health and its vital role in overall health and well-being. The overarching theme for this year’s celebration is Be Proud of Your Mouth.
We are proud to smile in celebration this year with our partner Delta Dental. A healthy smile is essential to the wellness of our mind, heart and body. Through Delta Dental’s generous support, we are able to offer CATCH Healthy Smiles for free to schools across the country. Our evidence-based resource is designed to help children in grades K-2 adopt healthy oral health habits for life.
Watch the video below to see what oral health means to team members of CATCH Global Foundation and Delta Dental, as well as individuals of the communities that we collectively serve.
