Put a smart smile on North Cyprus! Celebrating WOHD17

Our aim is to celebrate WOHD and contribute to spread WOHD to the whole world. Our primary aim is to enlighten people and children in our country about oral health care. Our target group is Northern Cyprus citizens and a group if children with low socio-economic level.

We have contacted with municipal authorities of three cities in Cyprus; Nicosia, Kyrenia, Famagusta. We got permissions for placing pavilions in each city and enlighten citizens about the importance of oral health. The concept of the pavillons are world oral health day and we prepared posters and brochures to put on pavillons and distribute to citizens as well. We are planning to put mouth and tooth brush models in pavilions to teach people how to brush and how to floss.

We chose a primary school with 300 children with low socio-economic level. We got permission from families and headmaster of the school to make oral examinations of whole children. Our team also prepared coloring books in concept of oral health that will appeal to children. In the afternoon there will be a parents education about oral health and how to treat and encourage children about oral health. Headmaster of the school hired us a big saloon and we will be able to make presentations both for children and parents.
