[Cavity Free Future] Toothie the Beaver impacted the lives of 1500 people in Croatia


The Center for Dental Medicine Orto Nova organized various activities on the occasion of World Oral Health Day 2024, including collaboration with educational institutions, community programs, and special initiatives for children with difficulties.

Through the "Cavity-Free Future" project, we created a special program called "Say Ahh," which, due to great interest, grew into the first oral hygiene school in Croatia. Through these efforts, we reached diverse populations, including children with Down syndrome, and achieved goals such as inclusion and raising public awareness for children with special needs. Our center collected over 3000€ in donations for an association with special gift cards for dental services, and the project was supported by the Curaprox organization.

Our project involved more than 1500 children and adults, reached over 100,000 views online through various communication channels. We have also translated promotional WOHD materials into Croatian, which highlighted the message and main slogan of the Toothie the Braver in presentations, ads, and videos. The "Cavity-Free Future" project was supported by all portals in the region, and it garnered the attention of the city of Rijeka, with whom we will start a joint event for all the institutional educators in 2025.


🦷🌍 These efforts significantly increased participation in World Oral Health Day activities and make small country as Croatia very visible on the map of the activities. Join our revolution and explore our other activities that we plan to carry out throughout the year: 

- Become a Dentist for a Day
- Smile and Sports Festival

- Free Dental Care for Homeless Program
