IFDH 2023-24 Social Responsibility Program:

Sharing Oral Health Knowledge for Sustainable Smiles

Many of the world’s most vulnerable people live in areas that do not have easy access to oral health care. The IFDH is encouraging its members to develop projects that can help close this gap. Projects where Dental Hygienists can share their knowledge of oral health with these vulnerable populations, whether it be in a:

  • Remote community that does not have Dental Hygienists
  • Long-term care facility where nurses are responsible for care
  • Daycare where teachers spend entire days with young children
  • Hospital where oral health care needs are often overlooked, etc.
