Snappy L. Chompers, mascot, was born in January of 2008. This friendly alligator helps spread the word about the importance of healthy teeth, brushing and flossing, and eating healthy food like fruits and vegetables.
His middle name is Louis, the name of an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer who was integral in helping establish PDI. Snappy often attends community outreach events and dental screenings, showing children how to properly brush and floss and keep their teeth cavity-free!
Snappy always remembers to brush and floss his 65 teeth twice a day. He lives in Sonoma County.
You can follow him on his Facebook page, on PDI's Facebook page, or sometimes he turns up on PDI's Twitter feed @PediatricDental
