PHS celebrates National Children’s Dental Health month!
Developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. Each February, the American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors National Children’s Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health. NCDHM messages and materials have reached millions of people in communities across the country. Whether you’re a member of the dental team, a teacher or a parent, the ADA has free online resources that can help you with oral health presentations, ideas for the classroom and coloring and activity sheets that can be used as handouts.
Please visit http://www.ada.org/5578.aspx for more info.» READ MORE...

The FDI World Dental Federation is a federation of approximately 200 national dental associations and specialist groups. The organisation’s vision of “leading the world to optimal oral health” acknowledges that oral health is an integral part of general health and well-being.
The FDI World Dental Federation released a report Aug. 30 that outlines five strategies to address what the FDI describes as urgent oral health care challenges facing the dental profession and its patients worldwide.
Shaping the future of oral health
Vision 2020 provides a sketch of how oral health care might look by 2020 if the profession tackles the challenges and seizes the opportunities in a timely and appropriate manner. It answers the essential questions: how can the profession grow in order to make a significant contribution to the improvement of global oral health during the coming decade?
Vision 2020 comprises five chief elements, analyzed according
to threat and opportunity. The first is to meet the increasing
need and demand for oral healthcare; Second is to expand the role of healthcare professionals. The third element is to shape a responsive educational model, while the fourth is to mitigate the impacts of socio-economic dynamics. The final element is to foster fundamental and
translational research and technology.
Vision 2020 is aspirational and inspirational; it is not meant to be operational. It provides avenues which will need to be further explored and discussed: specific strategies, tactical approaches, implementation tools or ready-to-use formulae, as those will depend largely on local needs and circumstances.
Vision 2020 is the beginning of a continuous process aimed at
generating discussion and collaboration between FDI and all
its partners. It is the result of a year-long reflection within FDI.
