The Oklahoma Dental Association is offering a limited edition (75) of the same statue of the "Father of Dentistry" that adorns their State Headquarters in Oklahoma City. The 16-inch miniature is also created by past ODA President Gary Gardner, a PFA Fellow, the original sculptor of the life size statue unveiled last April by the ADA President, the ODA President, and our PFA President William Winspear. The statues (large and small) were made to commemorate ODA's Centennial Celebration. This one-time offer will cost $1400 each. PFA President James Englander and ADA past President Kathleen Roth have statues already.
Pierre Fauchard (1678-1761), the namesake of our honorary dental professional service organization, was a French dentist that practiced dentistry in Paris about 1715. He was infl uential in raising dentistry from a trade to a profession. He advocated the sharing of dental knowledge and wrote the book The Surgeon Dentist (1728), which was widely used for decades in many parts of the world as a dental reference text.
