1,01,300 people screened for dental problems in one day, a Guinness record.
A total of 1,01,309 schoolchildren were recently screened for dental problems in a single day at 77 centres across the country, including Chennai, earning the event an entry in the Guinness Book of Records.
A team of 251 doctors, 516 dental students and 300 volunteers pulled off the extensive screening as part of the India Smiles campaign, a joint initiative of Saveetha University and TOI, to create awareness about oral health among schoolchildren. The earlier record for dental screening was held by a team in China.
