Dental World Issues


It seems to be about that time I guess. My term as President is concluding in October and the plans for the meeting in Denver are well under way. I’ve enjoyed my time in the position and hope I’ve had a positive impact on the organization. It’s interesting to be in a position such as this in that so much of what one does is never seen. I’ve had more pictures taken of me in different settings than I ever could have imagined, and am quite convinced that the number in any one setting is more than I was in at any of my daughters’ weddings. I have to say it’s a bit humbling. Let’s be honest, I’m not good looking, not a famous dentist from the lecture and CE circuit, and don’t look as good in a tuxedo as I used to. Nonetheless, members still want a picture with the President. It’s great to know that it matters to our Fellows to have an officer at their meetings.
