Thank you!  Thank you to everyone who donated blood at the Feb. 16 blood drive organized by the Dallas County Dental Society on behalf of Dr. Jeff Siebert '99.  Because of generous donors, 22 units of blood were credited to Dr. Siebert's blood-use account.  Dr. Siebert was on-hand for the event and was humbled by the support of his friends in the dental community.
