Candidate for ADA Delegate

 


Dr. Brian Schwab

 

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 taken a few years off to allow newer and younger members to get involved because it was the right thing to do. I do believe that I have relevant and salient experiences to bring to the PDA/ADA.

What is your specific area of interest within organized dentistry?

Membership recruitment and retention and political advocacy.

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

Declining membership and loss of political advocacy.

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

I have served as a leader in all parts of the quadpartite including president of my local and my district. I have served on the ADA Committee on the new dentist serving as chairman.

Why should you receive my vote?

I am willing to make the hard decisions that our organization must face in order to grow and survive for the next generation of practicing dentists.
