Teeth care


COLGATE-PALMOLIVE Malaysia, the Malaysian Dental Associatio­n and the Ministry of Health’s Oral Healthcare Division have launched Oral Health Month 2018.

This year, the theme is “Get Mouth Fit” to motivate Malaysians to think about oral care and regular dental visits as part of their overall approach to physical health and well-being. Now in its 15th consecutiv­e year, Colgate’s Oral Health Month 2018 continues to build on its efforts to enhance the overall health status and quality of life for Malaysians, by increasing accessibil­ity to dental services, which includes free dental check-ups at more than 1,000 participat­ing dental clinics nationwide this month.

According to the National Oral Health Survey in 2010, only 27.4 per cent of adults had a dental visit in the last one year. Colgate’s campaign seeks to address this directly as part of the four key steps to Get Mouth Fit.

As part of the campaign, popular TV host, actor and fitness enthusiast Fahrin Ahmad has been roped in to advocate the four key steps to Get Mouth Fit. Fahrin will share his tips with fans throughout this month.
