We need some DENTAL Emojis! Oral health is a part of overall health❤️

This petition had 79 supporters

We have patiently waited, update after update, and yet there is still not a single Emoji related to oral health or dentistry. Apple has upped their game with the "pregnant emoji" and the multi gender occupations & relationships, however there still is not even something as basic as a toothbrush in "emoji-world" to show everyone that taking care of your teeth DOES matter. Some people, we're sure, will say this is silly and insignificant, however, it has been our experience as a pediatric dental office, that there is a large portion of our American population that is not educated on how important a healthy mouth really is, and that lack of education is being passed down to the next generation, i.e. the generation that uses texting, apps, and yes, emojis, to communicate. So in an attempt to show our kids that brushing their teeth and keeping their mouth healthy is important enough to warrant an Emoji (or 2)from Apple, we are asking that everyone sign this petition and help us spur action from Apple and convince them to support the dental healthcare profession!
