Dental health can affect the functional, psychological and social dimensions of a  child’s well being. Oral pain has devastating effects on children, including sleep, poor growth, behavioural problems and poor leaning. Dental decay in children is  an important public health issue. Oral health is the condition of the mouth, teeth, and oro-facial structures that enable individuals to perform essential functions such as speaking, breathing and eating. Various modifiable risk factors, such as food consumption rich in sugar, poor oral hygiene, tobacco and alcohol use, lead to oral disorders. A health awareness programme must be organized to spread knowledge about healthy oral health practices.  The 2024 campaign focuses on the intricate link between oral health and general health with the theme “A HAPPY MOUTH IS A HAPPY BODY.”
