Thank You, Dr. Stocker!

The Elementary nursing staff would like to thank Jon Stocker DDS for graciously donating a new set of teeth, toothbrush and dental health video for oral health education. Many Elementary staff borrow this to teach their students the importance of brushing their teeth and oral health. The old, outdated set was ready to retire. Thanks for your support of our Elida students, Dr. Stocker!
