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 have been very active with organized dentistry, especially at the local level. I was lucky enough to be nominated through second district to get this opportunity.
What is your specific area of interest within organized dentistry?
Getting Young/New Dentist Involvement: Many do not know about the plethora of benefits & resources the ADA/PDA provides. New dentist involvement can develop a sense of comradery within our profession.
What is the main issue you see facing the ADA or PDA or Dentistry in general?
With the volatility of healthcare and insurance, it is absolutely important that the ADA/PDA protect and serve both the dental professional and their patients.
List experience that you have that you feel prepares you for this position.
I have been on the Mont/Bucks Board since 2012 and currently serve as an Executive officer (Treasurer). I am also a member of the Board of Directors for 2nd district.
Why should you receive my vote?
As a representative for younger dentists, I hope to give valuable input in the ADA Session Delegation.
