CALL TO ACTION In addition to these quantifiable objectives that focus on awareness, for the 2015 campaign we want to work with a proactive call to action, which is adaptable for the different audiences that will take part in World Oral Health Day: It s time to We want to urge everyone, from dentists to students, governments, and the media, to dedicate some of their time to oral health. You can use this call to action and adapt it to the needs of your individual campaign. For example, if you are doing a general campaign promoting oral health, your personal call to action could be It s time to smile for life. If you want to create an activity to specifically address the importance of protecting teeth and gums, you can use the phrase, It s time to protect your teeth by wearing a mouth guard.

On the other hand, if you want to focus on the importance of visiting the dentists you can use, It s time to visit your local dentist for a check-up. The call to action can also be adapted if you are seeking support from your local or national government: tell them It s time to create / invest in an adequate oral healthcare programme to reduce the economic /social burden of oral disease or It s time to introduce oral health in the educational calendar. It s time to can be adapted in whichever way suits your association best.

You can view the videos on the following links: The activities in Hong Kong were organized by the Hong Kong Dental Association and the Hong Kong University Faculty of Dentistry. On the days prior to the 20th of March, the students organized an oral health art competition with children from several schools, under the theme Celebrating Healthy Smiles. All the entries were then posted on a wall as part of the oral health exhibition and people, both young and old, were given information about oral health such as correct brushing techniques, and the importance of an optimal oral healthcare routine. These actions were further supported with flyers as well as social media activity, including posting pictures from the oral health exhibition and art contest.
