Oral Health Awareness Walk

Oral Health Awareness Walk

In celebration of the ‘World Oral Health Day’ Dentalcare Foundation will be organizing an oral health awareness walk in Ado-ekiti to raise awareness about the importance of oral health on the general health.

The purpose of this walk and awareness is to highlight oral diseases and proper self-care through good oral hygiene, regular dental check-ups and managing risk factors.

Oral health day is celebrated globally every year on March 20 and this years theme is “Unite For Mouth Health”. We want to reach out to the public, oral health professionals, and policymakers on how to unite in order to reduce the burden of oral disease. Join us as we spread the word on mouth health.
