The total registered life members as on date 1000. Now, we should concentrate on preventive education programs like practicing oral health habits, fluoride applications etc., along with curative procedures for child population which constitutes 42% of our country total population, which consists different categories of children wiz under-nourished, disabled, handicap, obese, and normal children. We should concentrate to take care of these under-privileged children because they don't have right to vote as per our constitution so far.
