Since 2004, a dedicated group of professionals has been tirelessly reminding everyone to take charge of their oral health. Oral Health Month Singapore complements the strong commitment to oral health which sees dentists recommending children as young as age one to have their first dental check up.
This time around, the Oral Health Month 2013 activities celebrate that A Healthy Life Starts with A Healthy Mouth with an entire month’s programme lined up including free dental check-ups nationwide. There will be five marquees where the public will enjoy expert advice, free Colgate product samples as well as oral health educational modules that are fun and engaging. Don’t miss the opportunity to pledge towards superior oral health in celebration of Oral Health Month's 10th anniversary!
Speaking on behalf of Colgate-Palmolive, a key partner in Oral Health Month, John Hazlin the Managing Director for Colgate-Palmolive Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei and Indonesia said, “Colgate is a committed partner year after year because we believe that a healthy life does start with a healthy mouth. In our experience, even with the strong position that Singapore has in oral health there is always room for improvement. At the 10th year of this successful collaboration, there’s more emphasis on children’s dental visits at an early age, the inculcation of good oral hygiene habits and getting parents really involved in the development of life-long oral health for their children’s overall wellbeing.”
With strong support from the Singapore Dental Association, the Singapore Dental Health Foundation, and the Singapore Health Promotion Board, Oral Health Month to date has reached out to more than 191,253 people since its inception.
