Candidate for ADA Delegate

 


Dr. Thomas W. Gamba

 

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 would like to be a delegate to the 2018 ADA House to offer my long experience in organized dentistry to my colleagues in Pennsylvania and around the country.

What is your specific area of interest within organized dentistry?

I am specifically interested in our continued ability to advocate for the profession in the legislatures and regulatory agencies at every level of the tripartite.

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

The most important task we face is what kind of mid-level providers the states may decide upon in the future.

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

My experience in leadership positions over the past 25 years has given me the necessary tools to represent the membership in our governance structure.

Why should you receive my vote?

As I always have, I will represent you and our profession in the best way I know how. I humbly ask for your vote for delegate to the 2018 ADA House.
