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)?
This year continues a list of many years of volunteering and attending the ADA Annual Meeting.
What is your specific area of interest within organized dentistry?
Advocacy is my main focus in our Association and the ADA.
What is the main issue you see facing the ADA or PDA or Dentistry in general?
Persons uneducated in dentistry making decisions that adversely affect treatment of our patients. These untrained persons are not limited to those in government and the insurance industry.
List experience that you have that you feel prepares you for this position.
Not only ADA Annual Sessions, but I regularly attend the annual ADA Washington Leadership Conference where dentists visit their U S senators and representatives to explain the ADA positions.
Why should you receive my vote?
I am eager to continue the efforts to achieve our goals and respectfully ask for your vote.
