‘Love Teeth Campaign’
The Oral Health Education Unit of the Department of Health holds the “Love Teeth Campaign” every year to promote the importance of oral health to the citizens of Hong Kong, encourage them to establish good oral care habits at an early age and foster proper oral care practices among them.
Besides, since 2013, in support of the appeal from the FDI World Dental Federation, the “Love Teeth Campaign” has designed its yearly theme in tandem with the “World Oral Health Day”. This year the theme is “Say Ahh: Think Mouth, Think Health”.
To step up publicity of the “Love Teeth Campaign”, from January to March of year 2018, we have organized a vast array of awareness-raising activities in the community. These included radio broadcast, newspaper advertorial, exhibition panels in bus shelters and Mass Transit Railway (MTR), Facebook games and magnetic playzone activities at Kowloon Tong MTR station. On 11 March, 2018, we held the “World Oral Health Day together with Love Teeth Campaign and Healthy Ageing in Public Rental Housing Estates Activity Day” to disseminate oral health messages to the public and let them share the important message with their family members that “oral health and general health are closely related”.
We hope that through different activities, the public will be made aware that oral problems such as dental decay and gum diseases share many common risk factors with other systemic diseases, including cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and cancer. These risk factors include poor personal hygiene, unhealthy eating habits and smoking, etc.
In the coming months, we will continue to organize events related to this year’s theme so that the “love teeth” message can be heard throughout every corner of the city. We hope that everyone will support the "Love Teeth Campaign" and cultivate a healthy lifestyle for themselves and their families for the betterment of oral and body health.
