To enhance public understanding of oral health diseases prevention, the FDI designates 20 March each year as World Oral Health Day. This year, the theme is Be Proud of Your Mouth. Oral Health plays a key role in our daily life. Maintaining good oral health can bring positive impacts to our physical and mental well-being and improve our quality of life.
Marking her 40th Anniversary in 2022, HKU Faculty of Dentistry organises a multilingual online quiz along with the yearly World Oral Health Day to engage the public to enhance oral hygiene knowledge.
