The World Oral Health Day is celebrated globally every year on the 20th of March to highlight the importance of oral health for a healthy body. This year, several universities in Sudan are collaborating to celebrate this day under the 2017 global theme 'Live Mouth Smart'.
The organizing universities are:
- Ibn Sena University (Nasreldin University)
- National University
- National Ribat University
- University of Khartoum
The celebration will take place over several days rather than just one to include events in public places in order to reach out to the greatest possible number of people "public talk", many activities as well as a dental therapeutic day and a closing ceremony which will include beneficial educational lectures followed by an entertainment program.
