TV9 Network discusses impact of diabetes on dental health

With its pan-India presence, TV9 Network has a strong connection with healthcare professionals across the country. And, over the last three years, the network has earned viewers’ trust through a variety of programs and initiatives aimed at providing structured information in the healthcare space.

“In the post-Covid era, we’ve seen people prioritize their health and fitness. However, oral health is rarely discussed in the popular media. That is why TV9 Network has partnered with industry thought leader Sensodyne to raise oral hygiene awareness,” said Raktim Das, TV9 Network’s Chief Growth Officer (Broadcasting & Digital).

“In the run-up to World Oral Health Day, we brought together leading practitioners from the industry on one platform – Oral Health Summit 2023,” he said of the Network’s commitment to mainstreaming oral healthcare in the country. It’s heartening to see India’s top oral health experts join the cause.”

“I extend my congratulations to the TV9 team for this partnership – Oral Health Summit – and for giving a platform to experts from the dentist fraternity, and eminent government officials to engage in a dialogue on how to improve access to oral health and normalizing oral care through education,” said Navneet Saluja, General Manager, BU – India Sub-continent, Haleon. Sensodyne India’s ‘Be Sensitive to Oral Health’ campaign for World Oral Health Day aims to enable 100,000 dental check-ups across the country. We appreciate our collaboration with the Indian Dental Association in organizing mega camps for oral health screening and education across the country.”

Dr. L Swasticharan, additional DDG & director (Emergency Medical Relief), DGHS, MoHFW, Government of India, spoke about the government’s various initiatives to make oral health accessible and affordable.

The Ministry of Health is planning a month-long celebration of World Oral Health Day in all dental colleges across the country. This will help to raise awareness about the importance of oral hygiene, according to Dr. Swasticharan. “The mouth is the mirror of the body,” he said. As a result, we must take good care of our dental health. One of the main causes of the most common oral health issues is our lifestyle habits, such as the use of tobacco in both smoking and smokeless forms.”
