What an honor and a privilege it is to serve as the president of the Illinois Academy of General Dentistry. Our missions for the year 2024 are to
1. To endorse life long learning by providing the best and highest quality of continuing education courses in all our 3 components of Illinois Academy of General Dentistry. These components are located in Northern Illinois, Chicago and Central Illinois which meets at SIU-SDM.
2. To be advocates for all our members at the national level of Academy of General Dentistry House of Delegates.
Upon joining this great organization, I have come to realize that the member dentist in the Academy of General Dentistry are well informed, very knowledgeable and well equipped to do the best dentistry. They are very confident in providing the best care for patients.
My challenge for this organization, is that each experienced member should develop within themselves the ability to mentor the young and upcoming dentists. Please encourage them to attend meetings and do the hands on classes.
