The event was conducted with the aim of inculcating positive dental messages in the children through activities and game booths, through which children could learn about good oral health habits. All participants were given a “game passport” to collect stamps upon completion of the game at each booth. Participants who collected all the stamps were given an oral care gift set. The Dental Boot Camp reached approximately 300 children and parents.
