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 active within organized dentistry through the local, district, state, and national levels over the last 10 years. I plan to use my experience to help the ADA promote & protect our dentists.
What is your specific area of interest within organized dentistry?
Promotion and Protection of our profession.
What is the main issue you see facing the ADA or PDA or Dentistry in general?
As dental benefits and insurer issues continue to be a top concern, the ADA and PDA need to continue advocating for dentists and create positive changes for our profession.
List experience that you have that you feel prepares you for this position.
Currently on the ADA Council of Dental Benefits & PDA Membership committee. Immediate past president of MBDS. 4 years as 2nd District director. Served as alternate delegate for last 3 years.
Why should you receive my vote?
With the ADA/PDA support, I believe it is critical that we take action to prepare for our future. I hope to represent all dentists of PA with an open mind to do what is best for our profession.
