Candidate for ADA Delegate

 



Dr. Lennie Checchio

 

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)?

My district felt that president elect should go and since I was a delight before they felt it would help me.

What is your specific area of interest within organized dentistry?

The enormous cost of a dental education is forcing our new dentists to sometimes compromise their ethics to pay back their debt.

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

Lack of membership. With large debt new dentists aren't seeing the importance of membership.

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

I've been on most positions in the philadelphia county including President. Also past delight to the ADA meeting. Delegate to the PDA meeting numerous times.

Why should you receive my vote?

I truly believe in the legislative process of the ADA. It can accomplish many things with the right people.
