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 decided to represent the PDA again at the HOD. During the last four years, I have been either a delegate or an alternate delegate.
What is your specific area of interest within organized dentistry?
I have been on the PDA bylaws committee as well as on the finance committee.
What is the main issue you see facing the ADA or PDA or Dentistry in general?
The main issue that I see facing organized dentistry is how the covid pandemic is going to affect membership due to financial hardships.
List experience that you have that you feel prepares you for this position.
I have been an alternate/delegate for a total of six times including the last four years. I have been on the by-laws and finance committees both at the state and local levels.
Why should you receive my vote?
One should vote for me because I am trully concerned about the general membership of organized dentistry. The challenges facing dentists, both young and old are staggering and magnified by covid.
