The Chicago Dental Society congratulates three new members of the Odontographic Society of Chicago: Mark Humenik, of Northbrook; Carole Landman, of Chicago; and Cheryl Watson-Lowry, of Chicago. These doctors were inducted Monday, April 1.

The featured speaker at the Odontographic Society meeting that night was 14th Ward Alderman Ed Burke, who discussed his passion for local history and shared with the audience stories of the two mayors who were assassinated: Carter Harrison Sr. in 1893 and Anton Cermak in 1933.

I believe that mascots are useful in encouraging kids to visit the dentist without fear or hesitation. During my son's first visit with the dentist, the staff presented a dental mascot with lots of activities in the dental office. David participated one before his turn in the dental chair. He was so happy that he forgot his dentist fear. Now that he's older, there's no problem for me to bring him to our trusted cosmetic dentist in Los Angeles for dental checkup.
