May 31 every year is observed as the World No Tobacco Day. The aim of the day is to spread awareness about the ills of tobacco consumption and also to encourage a day of abstinence from all forms of tobacco consumption.
At 32 Smiles too, we had covered a series of images during the entire month related to the ill-effects of smoking and consumption of tobacco on our Facebook Wall. In the next few days, we will also be associating ourselves with a Anti-Tobacco Campaign, which helps people to quit the use of tobacco.
I got an opportunity to address the Orthodontist Study Group at their conference where I gave an inspirational talk about “connecting the dots of life”.

Wishing you a beautiful rainy June ahead!
