‘Say Ahh: Think Mouth, Think Health’ encourages people to make the connection between their oral health and their general health and well-being. A healthy mouth and a healthy body go hand in hand, and this year’s campaign theme prompts people to recognize the close association between the two and the impact that one has on the other.

For the first time, FDI is launching a three-year campaign strategy under the theme ‘Say Ahh’. The phrase is synonymous with health and will resonate with many globally. It is commonly used by both dentists and doctors during check-ups and invites people to open their mouths for examination. Combined with different sub-themes each year, the ‘Say Ahh’ campaign brings to life the notion of the mouth serving as a mirror to the body and reflecting overall health.

In 2018, the aim is to educate people on the mouth and body connection and ‘Think Mouth, Think Health’. In 2019, the goal is to motivate people to take action in protecting their oral health and ‘Act on Mouth Health’. In 2020, the aim is to empower people to work together to drive positive change for oral health and ‘Unite for Mouth Health’.
