Why is it celebrated on the 2oth of march? Well there is a very good reason for it:

  • Seniors must have a total of 2o natural teeth at the end of their life to be considered healthy.
  • Children should have 20 baby teeth.
  • Healthy adults must have a total of 32 teeth and 0 dental caries.
  • Expressed in a numerical basis this can be translated as 3/20, therefore March 2oth.
