GUM HEALTH DAY 2022 SUCCESS
Positive feedback from EFP national societies and members of the public, success in reaching people most at risk of periodontal disease, a content-generating tool that can be used in future campaigns, and a clear message about the problem of unequal access to oral-health care. These were the key results from Gum Health Day 2022, according to the campaign’s co-ordinator Moritz Kebschull. "We got a lot of feedback that was positive and what is clear is that this content generator is not a one-off, but something that we can use again," he said.
