Hygiene has never been India's strong point

The most recent National Oral Health Survey conducted by the Dental Council of India across 233 cities showed that 60% of Indians never visit a dentist; and 50% didn’t care about preventing or curing dental problems. Also, almost 75% people brush their teeth only once or less than once a day; 24% people suffered from toothache in the past one year and 96% were aware of the problem, but only 35% treated it. Don’t say cheese.
