President’s Message

Since I became the President of the ASD on August 8, 2020, many of the activities in life that we love to do have been put on hold. We are so blessed to have chosen a profession that enables us to continue to help our patients during these difficult and unprecedented times. I understand that many of you may still have restrictions on what dental procedures you are allowed to carry out and I hope that you will be able to return to regular operations soon.    

I have two separate texting groups with very good friends of mine who are members of the ASD. We have helped each other to get through this past year by sharing our concerns, ideas, and many good laughs! I am so grateful to have made so many great friends over my past 25 years with ASD. I understand that many of you have affiliations with sports teams at all age levels (either as a Team Dentist, a fan, or a coach) and now your participation with sports may look different or be non-existent at this time. You are not alone! If you ever just want to talk to one of your ASD colleagues or board members, please don’t hesitate to reach out to any of us.  Read More
