Bangalore — Thousands of Indian children gathered in the southern city of Bangalore to brush their teeth, altogether, in an effort to raise awareness about good oral hygiene.
Dr. Girish Rao from My Dental Plan, a program that organized Thursday's event, says the 17,505 kids from 20 schools who participated set a new record for mass teeth-brushing activity.
The two-minute effort was witnessed by an international auditor who will submit documents to the Guinness Book of World Records.
Rao said in a statement that "the earlier record was by 13,800 children at El Salvador in South American in 1995."
