This Spotlight is sponsored by Sensodyne.

In conjunction with World Oral Health Day, which falls on 20 March, Sensodyne will be hosting its #BetterOralCareNation campaign for the second year in a row

Following the success of the first #BetterOralCareNation campaign, Haleon and Sensodyne will join forces with the Malaysian Dental Association to further address the current state of oral health in Malaysia.

According to the National Oral Health Survey of Adults in 2010, in Malaysia, 94% of Malaysian adults have gum problems while 88.9% of them have experienced dental cavities. A study by Haleon and Kantar also showed that 71% of Malaysians have experienced symptoms of teeth sensitivity.

This year's #BetterOralCareNation campaign aims to raise awareness about the importance of maintaining strong enamel and healthy gums, which will contribute to a more confident and healthier nation.

In an effort to make dental care fun and accessible to Malaysians, Sensodyne will be hosting a roadshow at Sunway Velocity Mall, which will feature all kinds of activities and freebies

Happening from 7 to 10 March, there will be lots to look forward to, including free dental check-ups, exciting experiential activities, special Watsons promotions, as well as free Sensodyne product samples and Touch 'n Go eWallet vouchers.

Sensodyne #BetterOralCareNation Roadshow
Date: 7 to 10 March
Time: 10am to 10pm
Location: Level 1 Concourse, Sunway Velocity Mall

You'll get a Mission Card once you register your details, then there'll be three checkpoints for you to participate in and fulfil. Make sure you collect your stamps at each station to redeem exclusive gifts.

There'll be three booths for you to explore, cutely named 'Eee', 'Ooo', and 'Ahh!'

At the 'Eee' booth, you'll get to pose with your friends and loved ones at a pretty photobooth. But that's not all, you'll be given two instant prints — one for you to bring home, and one for you to stick on Sensodyne's big mosaic wall, woah!

Next, head over to the 'Ooo' booth to get your enamel and gum health checked with Qscan Plus, a device that helps check your oral hygiene efficacy between your teeth and along your gum line using LED lights. This dental check-up is completely free of charge, and will be accompanied by dental experts who'll be able to give you advice on your oral health.

Lastly, the 'Aah!' booth will be giving out free ice cream in a unique vanilla with blue pea flavour. With this ice cream, you'll be able to directly test if you experience a tingling sensation when your teeth or gum come into contact with cold food, which is a sign of tooth sensitivity.

Once you've completed all the tasks, head back to the registration booth to claim your gifts and freebies!

If you've collected three stamps at each checkpoint, you'll be eligible to redeem a free Sensodyne product sample, yay! Psst, you can even claim up to RM8 in Touch 'n Go eWallet reload pin when you buy Sensodyne products at the roadshow.

What's more, you'll get to learn about Sensodyne Sensitivity, Gum & Enamel toothpaste, which provides triple action benefits

Sensodyne Sensitivity, Gum & Enamel toothpaste enables you to take control of three aspects of your oral health, thanks to its triple action formula with MicroFoam technology.

The toothpaste strengthens the enamel surface to help protect teeth from dietary acids. It also targets and removes plaque bacteria in hard-to-reach places in between the teeth and along the gumline. Lastly, it builds a protective layer over the sensitive areas of your teeth.

All in all, gum problems and enamel wear are two leading causes of sensitive teeth, and Sensodyne Sensitivity, Gum & Enamel targets those specific areas, while leaving a soothing sensation and extra fresh scent.

Head over to Sunway Velocity Mall from 7 to 10 March to learn more about your oral health with Sensodyne's #BetterOralCareNation campaign, and enjoy all kinds of exciting activities while you're there!
