Oral Cancer awareness month, Mediaplanet launches its newest edition of the Oral Health campaign. The campaign is aimed at increasing awareness of the importance of oral health to overall health and wellbeing. With topics ranging from the importance of starting a good oral care routine from a young age to how early detection of oral cancer can save your life, the campaign is a call to action urging people to advocate for their own oral health.
According to the Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, 50 percent of children will have tooth decay by the age of five. By neglecting their oral health, many Americans face a number of oral health diseases that not only can result in partial to total tooth loss, infection, and even death, but also overall wellbeing and mental health. 85 percent of Americans believe that oral health is extremely important to their overall health (according to a Delta Dental), yet only half of those surveyed reported they visit the dentist at least one time per year. This discrepancy highlights the importance of raising awareness on these topics and educating people on best practices.
The print component of Oral Health is distributed within today’s edition of USA Today in New York, Chicago, D.C Baltimore, Los Angeles, Houston, Las Vegas, Pittsburgh/Cleveland, and Boston markets, with a circulation of approximately 200,000 copies and an estimated readership of 600,000. The digital component is distributed nationally, through a vast social media strategy, and across a network of top news sites and partner outlets.

Profiled in the cover story is Rob Paulsen, American voice actor and throat cancer survivor. As the 2020 spokesperson for the Head and Neck Cancer Alliance, Paulsen has been advocating to raise awareness of the disease and preventative measures. In an interview with Mediaplanet he shares his experience with throat cancer and his motivation behind his advocacy.
This campaign was made possible with the support of the Academy of General Dentistry, American Association of Endodontists, American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Head and Neck Cancer Alliance, Operation Smile, America’s Toothfairy, SmartMouth, Native, and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts.
