Filipino Children Brush Teeth in Bid to Break World Record
Manila: More than 41,000 Filipino schoolchildren on Wednesday brushed their teeth simultaneously in three cities in the Philippines in a bid to break a world record, organisers said.

A total of 41,038 children gathered in open parks in Manila, the central city of Cebu and the southern city of Davao to make the bid successful.

Organisers said the bid broke Britain's current record of 33,038 children brushing their teeth simultaneously.

The children, wearing red, blue and white caps, brushed their teeth for a few minutes before breaking into cheers as they raised their toothbrushes.

The event, organised by a toothpaste company, was also aimed at promoting oral hygiene in the Philippines, where an estimated 1.5 million school children were found to have dental problems.
