National Oral Health Day - Dental Fitness

Shaun Johnson

The NZDA is launching National Oral Health Day annual awareness campaign. This dedicated national day will be celebrated during the first Friday in November every year. The aim of this day is to raise awareness about the importance of oral health through education, advocacy and access to oral care. 

The suggested theme for 2014 oral health day is "Dental Fitness". This concept highlights the importance of being dentally fit to maintain physical fitness.

We are extremly proud to have professional rugby league player Shaun Johnson as our campaign ambassador. As an elite sportsman Johnson understands the importance of being dentally fit to stay healthy and physically fit.The campaign messages will be promoted thorughout New Zealand by various oral health professionals.
