Volunteer dental students take place in others students schools to provide them advices to keep their mouth and teeth healthy. They discuss with them about oral health, they give them free toothbrush, toothpaste, floss etc. They also give them a card with national recommandations and tips written on it.

They give them a form to fill, to gather informations about students oral hygiene habits on a national scale. Year after year we analyse the results in order to write a scientific publication. Our form has been validated by the "public health teachers national collegium".
