Oral Health Foundation announces new strategy for oral health

The Oral Health Foundation has launched its new strategy for oral health, which will run until 2024.  Titled ‘Better oral health for all’, which addresses the world’s growing oral health demands. It also sets out how the charity will tackle oral disease and help improve the quality of life for millions of people in the UK and around the world. It comes at a time where half the globe’s adult population have tooth decay, including 500 million children who have decay in their deciduous teeth.

In a bid to eradicate dental disease and build a healthier society, the charity’s new strategy focuses on a series of key oral health pledges.  These include:

Throughout the five-year strategy, the charity will also organise several new oral health campaigns on sugar, dementia, alcohol, smoking and drug awareness. These factors have been identified due to the negative impact they can have on oral health and general healthiness and wellbeing.

Dr Nigel Carter, Chief Executive of the Oral Health Foundation, believes the new strategy will have a significant impact on the charity’s work, improving the oral health and wellbeing of the population. He says: “We are more determined than ever before to champion good oral health and help create a better, healthier future for everyone.”

Professor Elizabeth Kay, President of the Oral Health Foundation, wants to continue tackling the core issues that are disrupting the oral health of millions across the world.

She says: “Oral health inequalities and poor lifestyle factors continue to impact the most vulnerable members of our society through no real fault of their own. The Oral Health Foundation, through its ‘strategy to 2024’ will continue to lead the way in campaigning for better oral health and an improvement in quality of life.”
