The Alliance for a Cavity-Free Future, a non-profitable charitable organisation, is led by dental experts who have joined forces to help implement changes to dental health practices across the globe. The aim of the Alliance, is to promote initiatives to stop the development and progression of tooth decay in order to move towards a Cavity-Free Future for everyone. To achieve this goal, the Alliance believes that collaborative action is required to raise awareness of dental caries (tooth decay) and positively influence people’s dental health habits.
The Alliance for a Cavity-Free Future was built in collaboration with a worldwide panel of dental experts. The Alliance’s goal is to drive global collaborative action through partnerships with a range of stakeholders from dental health professionals to local public policy and education communities, to the general public. It is sponsored by Colgate-Palmolive Company, which supports improved oral health through its partnerships with the dental profession and government and public health agencies.
In July 2013, the ACFF announced the launch of a Pan-European Chapter, to bring together experts in dentistry and public health to create a collaborative focus for the implementation of key changes in dental health practices across Europe.
