Dr Vrinda Saxena who headed the team of dentists pointed out that “most of the students were not ­taking proper care of the teeth. A major issue common in the students was deficiency of essential vitamins which was adversely affecting their teeth.” The club members also helped ­doctors teach children and their ­parents about oral hygiene. To ensure that the ­students practise healthy oral habits, the club distributed dental kits to them.
