I want to thank Dr. Katerina Kavvadia and Dr. Andreas Acropolis for their invitation and warm hospitality for my visit to the University of Athens School of Dentistry. I appreciated having the opportunity to share my information on "Sleep Disordered Breathing and Myofunctional Appliance Therapy" with the residents and faculty of the Department of Pediatric Dentistry. I really enjoyed the culture, beauty, and history of Athens and Delphi.

It was a great learning weekend with a terrific study group!
