Raising awareness of oral health as part of overall health
This September, The British Dental Association and Colgate are raising awareness of oral health.
Colgate Oral Health Month informs and educates the public on the importance of good oral health, and encourages communication between dental professionals and patients. The theme for 2012 is ‘Oral health as part of overall health’.
Colgate is running a national radio advertising campaign and is hosting a Q&A event on its Facebook page during September, inviting the public to have their oral care questions answered by a dentist.
Colgate will provide all registered practices with Colgate Oral Health Month practice packs containing educational materials to help the team create a practice display.
For the national Colgate Oral Health Month road show, dental hygienists and therapists will provide oral care advice and raise awareness of oral health.
A verifiable CPD programme for all dental professionals, ‘Delivering better oral health – promoting prevention in adults’, is available to download.
