The School of Dentistry had an unusually visible presence at Children’s Day, because its Mobile Dental Clinic provided an interesting tour opportunity as well as a northern border to the event. The School also provided oral hygiene instruction (and a variety of oral hygiene freebies) to a continuous parade of children at a booth directed by Jeri Fowler, assistant director, Dental Alumni Association, who enjoyed the assistance of Stella Suba, RDA, CDA; Marie Worcester, volunteer from Continuing Dental Education; and Heidi Toppenberg, student worker, Continuing Dental Education.
