— The Howard University College of Dentistry treated 35 students from Raymond Elementary School at a Feb. 7 Give Kids A Smile event in Washington. During the event, the dental school’s third- and fourth-year students, and pediatric and orthodontic residents performed cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants, extractions, restorative treatments and orthodontic consults. The event was organized by Dr. LaToya Barham, a pediatric dentist and the school's clinic coordinator, and sponsored by the Howard student chapter of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and Dr. George Thomas.
