A Canadian Oral Health Professional Celebrating WOHD in Pakistan!
I had the great pleasure to speak with Ms. Ruth French, Professor in the Dental Hygiene and Assisting programs at Niagara College in Welland ON. She is currently in Pakistan teaching the second cohort of the Dental Hygiene program at the AGA Khan University and with her students, they celebrated World Oral Health Day with an oral health community outing in Karachi.

World Oral Health Day is celebrated globally every year on 20 March and is organized by FDI World Dental Federation. World Oral Health Day was launched in 2013 to raise awareness of the importance of good oral health and its significance in safeguarding general health and well-being. This is done through an international awareness campaign created and launched by FDI World Dental Federation, adapted and promoted locally by national dental associations in over 140 countries worldwide.
