For National Children’s Dental Health Month in February, Maria Fournier spoke at the Hellenic American Academy in Deerfield to 64 students in the Pre-K3 and Pre-K4 classes. The children were thrilled to see Illinois State Dental Society mascot Flossie, the guest of honor, who gave all of them goodies for good oral hygiene. The best part of the presentation for Maria was having her son in the audience!
