Award of Greek Association for Orthodontic Study and Research

On December 3rd 2005, the Greek Association for Orthodontic Study and Research was awarded the special prize "Award of offer to the children, Andreas Giannopoulos" from the non-profit organization "Hamogelo tou Paidiou", that provides shelter to children in need. The warm and touching ceremony took place at the Hilton - Athens hotel, amidst a high number of honorary persons.
Since 2004, the Association began a volunteer program of pro bono orthodontic treatment to the children finding short or long term care at the shelter. Due to the overwhelming reaction and love of the fellow orthodontists the first group of children is currently being treated and this plan will be continued in the future.
The past president Dr Vassilios Stathopoulos received this special prize on behalf of the Greek Association for Orthodontic Study and Research.
