World Cavity Free Future Day

It's time to #ChooseWater on 14 October

World Cavity-Free Future Day (WCFFD) asks people everywhere to join the fight against tooth decay by choosing water over sugary drinks for a day (and, of course, well beyond). 

How can you participate?  

We're encouraging everyone to mark the day with activities in their practice, workplace or out in the community.

To really make your event pop, we're offering 20 packs containing 20 water bottles, 20 toothbrushes and 20 toothpastes (adult only) to ADA members (one pack per practice or practice group) whose proposal must meet at least the first three of the following criteria:

- Oral hygiene products and water bottles should be part of an overall oral health promotion strategy outlined in the Project Description; 

- Initiatives should aim to target a reduction in caries and encourage Australians to choose water; 

- Initiatives should aim to improve common risk factor approaches and be connected to broader approaches aimed at improving oral health; 

- Approaches to oral health promotion should be informed by evidence of effectiveness where possible; and

- Agency collaborations and common risk factor approaches are encouraged to broaden the impact of the resources.

Applications are open from Monday 9 September to cob Monday 16 September.
