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)?
As the PDA 7th District Trustee from 2014-2017 I was a 3rd District ADA Trustee from 2014-2016. I was an Alternate Delegate in 2017. I definitely understand how things "get done."
What is your specific area of interest within organized dentistry?
What is the main issue you see facing the ADA or PDA or Dentistry in general?
Membership - I believe in strength in numbers. How can someone spend the time and money that we do to become a dentist and NOT view membership in our professional organization as important?
List experience that you have that you feel prepares you for this position.
Where should we begin?? I have been an associate, an employee of corporate dentistry, an IC, a practice owner (13 years), and a Medicaid provider. I am currently a mobile dentist in school settings.
Why should you receive my vote?
I consider my participation in the governance side of the PDA and the ADA the FAVORITE part of my 20 year dental career. I promise to do a good job for you!
