February is Children's Dental Awareness Month so I've posted a picture of Dr. Allan Yacubian, who has been a dentist in Quincy for 39 years. He is friendly and kind and can be counted on to wear a bow tie and a smile when he tells you to open wide. He grew up in the "Norfolk Downs" section of Quincy and went to North Quincy High School where he became the model for the school's symbol and mascot, "Yakoo", 50 years ago. "Yakoo" came under attack in the political correctness of the 1990s but this did not diminish the spirit or commitment Yacubian gives to his profession, to his alma mater and to his community. But best of all he keeps my choppers chopping!
Do you have a favorite dentist?
