Celebrating World Oral Health Day during COVID-19

The Russian Dental Association (RDA) is a member of FDI World Dental Federation. During the COVID-19 outbreak, they adapted their messaging to include important public health guidance about the pandemic.

Stay at home

In addition to the general dental advice on how to keep your mouth and body healthy, the RDA encouraged people to stay at home, wear a mask and practice social distancing if they had to go outside.

1,500 pledges

The RDA also rolled out the “Say Ahh: Unite for Mouth Health” 2020 pledge campaign in Russia. In total, they collected close to 1,500 pledges (they adapted several FDI pledges in Russian and also gathered pledges in English through the WOHD.org online pledge generator). Well done!
