The Ethiopian Dental Professional’s Association, along with Unilever, the manufacturer of Signal toothpaste and toothbrush, celebrated World Oral Health Day for the 4th time in Ethiopia under the theme ‘Say Ahh: think mouth think Health’. The celebration is intended to bring the public together to influence a country wide behavioral change on oral hygiene.
The Association, jointly with Unilever educated 181,468 students in different primary schools in Addis Ababa, Jimma and Mekelle, about the importance of maintaining oral hygiene. The Association in partnership with Signal also took celebrations to two different towns outside of Addis Ababa and educated primary school kids on keeping a healthy mouth.
Free dental checkups and treatment was also offered in partnership with the Addis Ababa University School of Dentistry.
