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 an organized dentistry volunteer for over 30 years. I believe that giving back to your profession is of paramount importance.
What is your specific area of interest within organized dentistry?
My specific interest is to identify leadership that is needed for the profession to continue to lead and be represented appropriately.
What is the main issue you see facing the ADA or PDA or Dentistry in general?
actually there are two. Membership volume and getting dentists to understand we need everybody help especially getting legislation passed. The more involved the more voice we have.
List experience that you have that you feel prepares you for this position.
I have been a delegate at the ADA many times before and have been the PDA Vice President, secretary and President elect and President. I have also served on an ADA Council.
Why should you receive my vote?
I promise to represent the PDA to the best of my ability and will provide leadership and help provide direction to old and new delegates so we can all represent the PDA proudly.
