A Class of 2015 graduate from The Episcopal School of Dallas, Christina Gordon was recently one of 10 named to Richmond Inno Under 25's 2021 list. Gordon, a Virginia Commonwealth University doctoral student in dentistry, developed the Proxy-Flosser to help people with braces clean their teeth. The Proxy-Flosser idea came from Gordon's real-life experiences. She used $10,000 from the VCU Commercialization Fund to develop the prototype and was one of five to receive funding.
This is not Gordon's first time to use her experience to help others. In ninth grade at ESD, she launched Friendsinkneed.com to encourage and support fellow student-athletes recovering from injuries.
Gordon published Finding Hope: A Dog's Tale her junior year. On a fun note, she read her book to the (then) fourth-grade Class of 2022 as part of their Texas history study! Read more about her book here.
Proud of you, Eagle!
