The third annual World Cavity-Free Future Day (WCFFD) on October 14, 2018, is an initiative launched in 2016 by the Alliance for a Cavity-Free Future (ACFF) to address the need for greater global awareness of dental caries.

In support of WCFFD, the Alliance for a Cavity-Free Future (ACFF) in partnership with Colgate and the ADA, DHAA, and ADOHTA have come together to launch a #WCFFDay dental awareness campaign to help prevent cavities in adults and children.

“Australians are being urged to join the fight against tooth decay by choosing water over alternative sugary drinks for a day.”

On this day, Australians are being urged to join the fight against tooth decay by choosing water over alternative sugary drinks for a day.

We need your help to spread awareness and support for the campaign.

  • Plan an Oral Health Promotion project and apply for a box of materials provided by ACFF and Colgate containing 20 drink bottles, 20 brushes and 20 pastes to assist with delivery of your project. The first 25 projects that meet the eligibility criteria will each receive a box. For more information and terms please [email protected]

  • Share our social media resources with your friends / families / co-workers / neighbours / health professional colleagues and become an ambassador for a cavity-free future.

  • Use the #WCFFDay hashtag on 14 October on social media to become part of the social movement, or tweet a photo of your smile or yourself drinking water to @acffanz, @colgateanz, @dhaanews using #WCFFDay to show your support for the fight to ensure a future free from cavities.
