Dentist providing treatment at a dental charity event

Wrigley Mansion provided a picturesque backdrop for this women dentist event. The ambiance at the Mansion has unique mystique quality, but I’ve definitely taken photos and filmed in better lighting condition. That said, the women dentists (many I know; some I've interviewed or filmed a promotional video for) were a blast to be around.

Inaugural Dean of ASDOH Dr. Jack Dillenberg. This photo was on the cover on the state dental association's monthly publication. Nice note—Dr. D liked the photo so much, he requested a copy for himself.
