What great insight and advice the students received from each office.  They learned about insurance, office design, sleep apnea, were given reading suggestions (for personal growth), received as gifts like the book,"FISH", and terrific advice from all the dentists!

On August 19th,  there were three special elections in Virginia.  The Democrats, as expected, were successful in keeping both seats they had in the House of Delegates.  Joe Lindsey (D-Norfolk) easily won the 90th District seat held by Algie Howell for over a decade and Rip Sullivan (D-Arlington) handily defeated his Republican opponent in the 48th District which was formerly held by Bob Brink.  Both are expected to be seated during the Special Session scheduled for mid-September in Richmond.
