Dental Care Merits a Special Celebration
A massive campaign on "Love Teeth Day" (LTD) was initiated and celebrated nation-wide each year in China since 1989 in order to implement preventive oral health care and oral health education. Nine government and non-governmental organizations (Ministry of Health, Central Patriotic Public Health Campaign Committee, Minsitry of Education, Ministry of Culture, Ministry of Radio, film and television, All-China Federation of Trade Union, Central Committee of Chinese Communist Youth League, All-China Women's Federation, China National Committee on Ageing) jointly supported that the 20th of September of each year be designated as the Love Teeth Festival in China. The main activities were planned and conducted by the National Committee for Oral Health, which was formed in 1988. However committees were also set up at province, county and municipal levels to support preventive oral care (in the Chinese rural infrastructure, the health care delivery system of a county consists of 3 levels - village, township and county). Various forms of mass media were used for the dissemination of oral health messages to the public - radio, television and newspapers.
