As the world prepares to celebrate World Oral Health Day, Pepsodent Nigeria took to the streets of Lagos to protest against tooth decay and all other oral diseases, and promote good oral hygiene. This took place on Ikorodu Road, yesterday, March 14th, 2018.
As part of its campaign to get Nigerians to brush day and night, free Pepsodent toothpaste packs were given out today, at Lekki Toll Gate, to encourage Nigerians to adopt the habit of brushing day and night.
Tooth decay is the most widespread, chronic disease in the world, which affects 3 in 5 Nigerian children, and almost all adults, Pepsodent is reiterating the need to prevent this disease through the adoption of good oral care habits, like brushing twice daily (morning and night) with a fluoride toothpaste.
