PCSO friends - please join us in wishing our very own PCSO Secretary-Treasurer, Dr. Thomas Merrill, a very happy birthday! 🥳 🎁 🎂 . As a nature connoisseur, Dr. Merrill will probably be spending today fishing, mountain climbing, or hiking (or all of the above) with his family. . Being a natural team player, Dr. M was drawn to PCSO as an opportunity to interact with other orthodontists. He insists that he's always gotten more out of his service to the specialty than he's had to give. We appreciate all that you do! Cheers to you, Dr. Merrill!
