Dr. Katie Booth Plaque Presentation

Some things from 2020 were a blur.  Thank you to Dr. Katie (Buskirk) Booth for helping navigate our dental society through one of the craziest years most of us have ever experienced in dentistry.  Pictured is Dr. Mary-Margaret Looker giving Dr. Booth her long-overdue plaque, commemorating her service as G.V. Black President from 2019-2020.
