Candidate for ADA Delegate

 


Dr. David A. Schwartz

 

What led you to decide that this was the year you wanted to volunteer for office (PDA Officer or ADA Trustee) or volunteer to attend the ADA and represent the PDA (ADA Delegate or Alternate)?

I will be running for PDA district 4 trustee in 2018 and I would like more experience with this aspect of that position.

What is your specific area of interest within organized dentistry?

Government and Insurance intrusion in our business.  A close second would be the physiology of dental treatments.

What is the main issue you see facing the ADA or PDA or Dentistry in general?

A general lack of enthusiasm or concern by the average member and non-member, spurred on by some inflexibility, either real or perceived, of how the organizations are run.

List experience that you have that you feel prepares you for this position.

Served as Local officers, including president twice; District president and representative on numerous councils, including Government Relation; PDA Alternate Delegate 3 times, including 2016.

Why should you receive my vote?

Experienced enough to know what I am doing, yet I am not one of the same people that go over and again.
