Lahore: Every year, 15th of May is celebrated as World Orthodontic Health Day under the banner of World Federation of Orthodontics. This year’s theme slogan is “The world unites when people smile”. WFO created a special logo and posters that established the brand identity of this annual celebration.
World Federation of Orthodontics strives to encourage high standards of orthodontics, throughout the world. Their logo aims to become a recognized icon of orthodontic care across the globe; the symbol of harmony represents the coming together of legendary spirit, thus Olympic colors signify people, of every race and color coming together for orthodontic health.

Iffat Batool, Principal, Sharif College of Dentistry and Head of Department Orthodontics, stressed upon the need for increasing orthodontic health awareness among general population, for the prevention and management of orthodontic problems.
