World Cavity Free Future Day 2020 focuses on healthy smiles across generations
Looking ahead to October 14, 2020, the fifth annual World Cavity-Free Future Day (WCFFDay) will focus on tooth decay as a disease across the life course, with each age group and generation experiencing different challenges and needs for the best oral care.
Globally, nearly 100 per cent of adults have tooth decay and oral disease affects 3.9 billion people worldwide, with untreated tooth decay impacting almost half of the world’s population. More casual conversations among adults, children and seniors about dental care is a great place to start to help people of all ages focus on their dental health and reduce these numbers worldwide.
WCFFDay was launched as an initiative in 2016 to address the need for greater global awareness of dental caries. In addition, ACFF focuses on the wider issues that stem from poor dental health and raises global awareness about best practices for the prevention and management of caries and cavities.
