    5303

Dr. Michael’s Dental Clinic, the premier provider of advanced oral health care in Dubai, is set to join governments, dental associations, schools and communities all around the globe in celebration of the World Oral Health Day (WOHD) 2015.

Celebrated on the 20th of March every year, WOHD is an international event run by the FDI World Dental Federation. It highlights the advantages of a healthy mouth, raises awareness on oral health issues and emphasizes the value of good hygiene to everyone old and young.

An alarming 60-90% of school children have dental cavity (tooth decay) and 90% of the world’s population will suffer from oral diseases in their lifetime.

The theme for this year is “World Oral Health Day 2015, Smile for life!” and it explores two key messages which are ‘lifelong smile’ and ‘celebrating life.’ FDI President Dr Tin Chun Wong explains, “Smiling implies self-confidence and having fun, as people only smile if they are happy and have a healthy life.”

Dr. Michael Formenius, CEO & Clinical Director of Dr. Michael’s Dental Clinic says, “An alarming 60-90% of school children have dental cavity (tooth decay) and 90% of the world’s population will suffer from oral diseases in their lifetime; a lot of them can be avoided with improved support for prevention, detection and treatment. This year, we aim to reach out to more people to promote oral health awareness and education.”

Dr. Michael’s will participate by creating customized posters and competitions on social media to support the campaign. The dental providers of the clinic will also incorporate this year’s theme within their scheduled school visits.
