DENTAL NATIONAL NEWS FROM THE ADA
July 20–24 marked the first joint annual session between the Hispanic Dental Association, National Dental Association and Society of American Indian Dentists. It was estimated that more than 1,100 dentists, hygienists, assistants, faculty and administrators, public sector leaders, other associations, technical exhibitors and corporations from across the country attended the summit, held at the Boca Raton Resort & Club. Because of the historic nature of the summit, the ADA helped support the event, along with a number of other sponsors.
“Three of the nation’s premier dental organizations joining forces and cultures to host our very first historic meeting—what a monumental event,” said Dr. Lilia Larin, president of the Hispanic Dental Association. “The battle for oral health may not be easily won but with a joint approach our goals may soon see a brighter future.”
Life Smiles Dentistry in Plymouth, Minnesota, is proud to be a part of a multi-cultural community and agrees that the more we join together the better chance we have of increasing our nation’s overall Dental Well-being.
