New Delhi: Bollywood actress Karisma Kapoor, who flagged off an oral health care camp for children in the capital, says as a child she was scared of dentists.
"I was very scared of going to a dentist. But thanks to my parents, they pushed me to keep my teeth clean and inculcated the habbit of brushing my teeth twice a day. I`m trying to give the same lesson to my kids also," Karisma told reporters Tuesday.
"The enthusiasm of the children, the dentists and everyone present here is testimony to the seriousness of the initiative. I would like to urge the people to make the most of the various facilities available as part of the Oral Health Month across the country," said 36-year-old who is a mother of two kids.
The oral health camp, an initiative by the Indian Dental Association and Colgate Palmolive, is a part of the Oral Health Month being observed across the country.
It is also an attempt to create a Guinness World Records by conducting the maximum dental check-ups in one day at over 10 different locations across two metros - New Delhi and Chennai.
