Chair's Message

Posted January 30, 2017

The National PFA held it's 80th annual meeting in Denver, Colorado, concurrent with the ADA Annual Meeting. Our meeting was well represented by the Michigan Section. Dr. Cheri Newman was elected as the new Vice President. Dr. Ghabi Kaspo was swore in as the new trustee for Region 4- Midwest USA. Dr. Sherill Behnke and I participated in the meeting.

Dr. Cheri Newman Vice President and Dr. Ghabi Kaspo Trustee of Region 4 along with the Michigan Section will host a Region 4 Workshop, March 24-25, 2017. Region 4 consists of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia and Wisconsin. Region chairs are invited. To discuss leadership and running a section with PFA. I'd like to invite all fellows to attend the joint Dinner of American/International College of Dentist and Pierre Fauchard Academy. To be held Thursday, April 2. Watch your mail for more details or contact Dr. Norman Palm at

The Pierre Fauchard breakfast will take place Saturday, April 29 at 7 a.m. in the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel. Check the MDA Annual Session Official Program for room location. Feel free to contact me at about any concerns!

Our mission as Fellows is to recognize and grow leaders in the dental profession, their communities and society. With this in mind our Michigan Section is supporting Dr. Gary Jeffers for President-Elect of the American Dental Association 2017. We have dontated $1,000 to his campaign.

My 2 year term as chair will come to an end at the breakfast meeting. Dr. Sherill Behnke wil be our new chair at the end of breakfast. If you are interested in getting involved and being a board member please contact Dr. Sherill Behnke at

Thank you for your support,
