World Cavity Free Future Day Sunday 14 October

World Cavity Free Future Day (WCFFD) is on 14 October. Celebrating its third year, WCFFD is an initiative launched in 2016 by the Alliance for a Cavity-Free Future to address the need for greater global awareness of dental caries.

In support of WCFFD, the Alliance for a Cavity-Free Future in partnership with Colgate and the ADA, Dental Hygienists’ Association of Australia, and Australian Dental and Oral Health Therapists’ Association have come together to launch a #WCFFDay dental awareness campaign aimed at preventing cavities in adults and children.

On this day, Australians are being urged to join the fight against tooth decay by choosing water over sugary drinks for a day.

Become a #WCFFDay ambassador by:

  • Promoting water over sugary drinks at your school, workplace or with your patients.
  • Encouraging healthy choices at home and at family events
  • Sharing ADA oral health resources
  • Using #WCFFDay to promote messages on social media
  • Encouraging your staff and patients to post a photo of their healthy smile with the hashtag on Facebook to @australiandentalassociation 
  • Sharing, liking and talking about our social media posts.
