Happy World Down Syndrome Day 2024!

World Down Syndrome Day serves as a reminder of the unique challenges and strengths of people with Down syndrome. It's a day to celebrate their unique abilities, contributions, and to advocate for their rights.

People with Down syndrome often encounter dental problems such as delayed eruption of teeth, missing teeth, crowding, and gum disease. These challenges can significantly impact their overall well-being and quality of life if left unaddressed.

On this World Down Syndrome Day, let's not forget the significance of oral health in the lives of people with Down syndrome. Access to proper dental care, early intervention, and education on oral hygiene are vital to ensuring their oral health needs are met. By raising awareness about these issues and advocating for inclusive dental care practices, we can help improve the oral health outcomes and overall health and happiness of people with Down syndrome.
