'Betsy Floss' makes 4th of July appearance

September 03, 2012
Floss on parade: Dr. Jerry Savory of Boulder, Colo., and his staff got into the patriotic spirit for Independence Day and sponsored a “Betsy Floss and the Periodontal Patriots (a.k.a., The Freedom Flossers)” float in the Boulder/Niwot annual 4th of July parade. The group tossed packages of floss and xylitol chewing gum into the crowd to promote good oral hygiene. Dr. Savory, speaker of the Colorado Dental Association’s House of Delegates, is pictured at top right.
