World Orthodontic Health Day

The WOHD logo was designed by Ananth Shankar and is described as:

“The World Orthodontic Health Day is celebrated by a logo that aims to become an easily recognized icon of orthodontic care across the globe.

At the core of the logo is a wide smile, bright white teeth space within healthy pink gums that have braces on them. These braces represent the kinship between orthodontists and a world that unites when people smile – for this purpose the braces are actually human silhouettes holding hands as “buddy braces”. This symbol of harmony also represents the coming together of a legendary spirit, thus in Olympic colours, signifying people of every race and colour coming together for orthodontic health.

The smile is within a white circle, the shining world and that itself is within a solid square block, a geometric outline that indicates stability and solid reputation. The font of the logo is classy, tall and modern. These elements are in the colours of the World Federation of Orthodontists – gold and burgundy.”
