As part of celebrations to mark World Oral Health Day, Unilever Ghana, producers of Ghana’s leading oral care brand – Pepsodent has activated a new global teledentistry campaign christened “Talk To A Dentist”.
Teledentistry which seeks to bring dentists closer to Ghanaians is in partnership with the Ghana Dentist Association.
Speaking on the sidelines of the celebration in Accra, the Category Manager, Oral Care Ghana, Osata Evbuomwam said, “A core value of our brand is to prevent oral disease for everyone. We want to make the process of accessing a dentist as seamless as possible, to provide quality dental advice and care, especially for those who have never been to a dentist before. Our teledentistry service and dental camps have been introduced to give people access to professional oral healthcare, no matter where they are. Our World Oral Health Day 2023 campaign, ‘Now Everyone Can #TalkToADentist’ encourages people to take the first step to improve their oral health by going for their first dental visit, for free.”
President of the Ghana Dental Association, Dr. Paapa Puplampu, also underscored the need for a behavioural change towards oral care in the country.
“A large proportion of the population has never been to the dentist, not even once. To change this reality, our job is to help people take the first step towards better oral health by providing them with easy and convenient access to dental consultations. Pepsodent Ghana’s teledentistry and dental camp services will help to improve people’s habits and hopefully encourage them to regularly go for check-ups to avoid costly procedures in the future”.
This World Oral Health Day, Pepsodent Ghana is urging everyone to take the first step to improve their oral health with a free Teledental consultation.
