PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A MAKE-UP EVENT FROM OCTOBER WHEN THE JCC SUSTAINED TORNADO DAMAGE.
Please join us on Tuesday, March 3rd at 7:30p for a fascinating meeting of hot topics and timely discussions on children's health generously sponsored by Children's Dentistry of North Dallas. We'll have leading pediatric experts discussing current issues in their field before opening it up to a panel discussion and Q&A from the audience. We'll cover everything from how to recognize tongue and lip ties (and can they really affect speech?) to signs of early behavior differences and everything in between. This is a meeting you won't want to miss! Spouses welcome!
