It is an honor to serve as the Georgia Dental Society’s President for 2019 and 2020. I am eager to get to know more of you, along with your interests and concerns. As President, my goal is to promote the values of the Georgia Dental Society and the importance of our involvement in organized dentistry. I will strive to continue to grow its membership and community involvement and awareness. Along with the Executive Board and staff members, I hope to show how the Georgia Dental Society can make a difference in your daily professional experience.
The Georgia Dental Society has a strong focus on mentorship, educational enrichment, and being an inspiration to young Georgians. In 2018, the Georgia Dental Society awarded nine scholarships to undergraduate dental students and one scholarship to a dental hygiene student. We also hosted a New Dentist Symposium during our fall meeting. Along with the many opportunities offered for free continuing education courses to members and non-members, we sponsored mentorship events at several HBCUs including Spelman College and Morehouse School of Medicine.

Your financial support assisting in sponsoring these events and awarding scholarships is greatly appreciated. Nothing we do would be possible without a strong community of people passionate enough to volunteer their time to these efforts. Volunteers are welcomed to become mentors and event speakers.
I encourage you to join the Georgia Dental Society or renew your membership. Please urge your colleagues to become members and make your voices heard. Visit our website at www.georgiadentalsociety.org.
