World Oral Health Day Aotearoa! by New Zealand Dental Association

Social media campaign

The New Zealand Dental Association (NZDA) is gearing up to raise awareness about World Oral Health Day (WOHD) within Aotearoa New Zealand by holding a social media campaign. The NZDA has prepared nationwide communications to circulate information on WOHD and the importance of prioritising our oral health. All New Zealand preschools, schools, district health boards, public health units and NGO's will receive information on how they can celebrate WOHD and  follow the NZDA social media campaign.

As well as strong oral health messages, the campaign includes an online competition that the public can enter. We are asking kiwis "what makes you proud of your mouth?" in order to encourage conversation about all things oral health. We have prizes up for grabs for the best answers and engagement with our competition. Prizes  include stainless steel drink bottles, electric toothbrushes, oral hygiene kits and bench top water coolers. 

The NZDA identify WOHD as an opportunity to empower the New Zealand population to consider their oral health a priority. This will be done by oral health promotion through our social media platforms and via communications to various communities and organisations.
