On the occasion of World Oral Health Day, FDI World Dental Federation revealed the results from a global survey carried out to determine people’s oral health beliefs and habits. The results exposed a significant gap between what people believe to be good oral health practices, versus what they actually do. 
 
The countries which participated in this survey were: United Kingdom, United States of America, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, Poland, South Africa, India and Egypt. The survey was carried online. 
 
Dr. Patrick Hescot, FDI President, comments "These survey results highlight an alarming discrepancy between knowledge and actual good oral health practices. We want everyone to take control of their oral health this World Oral Health Day and understand that by adopting good oral hygiene habits, avoiding risk factors and having a regular dental check-up, they can help protect their mouths. A healthy mouth allows us to speak, smile, smell, taste, touch, chew, swallow and convey a range of emotions with confidence and without pain, discomfort and disease. Good oral health matters and translates to a better quality of life.”
