WOHD Message from Principal PDC Dr. Talat Firdous
Prof. Dr. Talat Firdous
Principal Peshawar Dental College
It was just a year back in 2016 that WOHD was celebrated with a very nice theme “healthy mouth healthy body” A great idea of relating general body health to healthy mouth and very easily understandable by the common people (the community) This year FDI emphasized on smarter activities to improve oral health with the slogan “live Mouth Smart” which is of course an awesome idea but the target is very difficult to achieve.
The common people, uneducated or educated, are ignorant of the basic issues of oral health and are in dire need to be informed and guided towards the practices of healthy habits. It is also required to emphasize the restriction of unhealthy diet and identification of oral disease, like caries and gum diseases. Still others who have the knowledge and awareness seek treatment for enhancement procedures.
Improving general and dental health, being presentable, confident and attractive and a beautiful & confident smile is of course a very smart idea and is the desire of all.
The faculty staff and students of PDC are making every effort to make “live Mouth Smart”, (WOHD) a success. My sincere wishes for the community to live mouth smart, have a healthy mouth and healthy body, a feeling of well-being and a confident personality that comes from an attractive smile. I appreciate all the WOHD activities at local, national & global level. May ALLAH almighty bless you all for making an effort in bringing awareness on dental health issues and wish you all the best in the coming endeavors.
