The World Dental Federation (FDI) unveils its 3-year “Be Proud of Your Mouth” World Oral Health Day campaign on March 20, 2021.[1] We, as ISPPD members, support this initiative and look forward to a new dawn in 2021. Certainly, the last year has fought back the COVID pandemic and hopes to overcome it have strengthened by the immunization programs that have begun globally. Dentists, in many countries, are now licensed to be vaccination providers as each tiny step counts; the global burden of immunizing the population is reducing steadily. Pediatric dental practice underwent changes during the COVID era for good; we now have seen a splurge of minimal intervention procedures, materials, techniques, and most importantly, parental acceptance. This new dawn would continue with continued research and evidence-based practice.

The key campaign messages include,[1]

  • Oral health is one of the main pillars of overall health and well-being
  • Managing risk factors for oral diseases can also help avoid other health conditions
  • Most oral health conditions are largely preventable and can be treated in their early stages
  • Universal health coverage: Every person, everywhere, should have access to the health services they need without the risk of financial hardship when paying for them.


As pediatric Dentists, we are in a primary position to raise awareness about the importance of good oral health and its vital role in securing overall health and well-being of the child. We are dedicated to safeguarding the health of children through the improved prevention, treatment, and control of oral diseases. Ultimately restoring healthy smiles; triumphing the #WOHD21 be proud of your mouth campaign!
