Donor: Dr. Michael Foley and the staff of Winning Smiles Pediatric Dentistry

Established by Michael Foley, D.D.S. and the staff of Winning Smiles Pediatric Dentistry in
memory of their beloved Practice Administrator, Fran VanDekken. Fran was admired for her
leadership, exemplary professionalism, and passionate pursuit of the very best experience
for the patient. She served as an excellent role model and mentor for many young women
entering the dentistry field during the last two decades. When she lost her hard fought
battle with multiple myeloma, this award was created to help a student who embodies her
spirit and desire to excel within the profession of dentistry.
