Gum Health Day 2019: Brazil – students and teachers promoting oral health
Promoting periodontal awareness in Brazil
The Brazilian Society of Periodontology, one of the new international associate members of the EFP, ran a social-media campaign to promote Gum Health Day 2019 during March.
The society followed this up by emphasising the awareness day during the XXVIII Brazilian Periodontology Congress on May 3.
It then carried out several activities in Curitiba, in southern Brazil, to promote gum health. About 20 teachers and students from the Federal University of Paraná joined in helping to promote oral health and periodontal awareness and in providing oral-hygiene instructions to more than 100 people.
