This year's "Art of Dentistry" photo exhibition first place winner is "Randrops on Window with Screen" by Dr. Roger Mondale of Minnetonka. Eye-catching, intriguing, involving, beautiful - the more you look, the more you see. The more you see, the more you think. The more you think, the more you apply. What could be more emblematic of a Star of the North Meeting than that? This year's SON gave us windows to look out of, to look in through; windows to bring you as close as this; windows to magnify and reveal. It's a challenging world we've arrived in. Time to polish your optics and expand your vision. "Star" coverage continues through the issue.
