World Oral Health Day in Rural Ghana

Oral Health Professionals Association of Ghana,  is taking the WOHD campaign to Rural Ghana where Dental care is regarded as a luxury rather than a basic need. 

We intend to engage school children in Oral health education as well as distribute toothpaste and toothbrushes.

Additionally,  we will provide free dental examination, screening and treatment to a selected deprived community known as Apesikka in Brong Ahafo Region. 

We are finally going to engage the local media,  and opinion leaders to create awareness 


Within the World Oral Health Day the meetings have been organized with schoolchildren, lectures on individual oral hygiene were given, and supervised toothbrushing was carried out. In order to assess the dental status additional check-ups have been organized in schools. Schools, kindergartens and a dental clinic department are provided with video materials about oral health and the need for timely treatment. We have posted materials about oral hygiene on the website of the polyclinic.
