A Message from Our President

I am honored to serve as the President of the Clark County Dental Society for the upcoming year. Serving on the Executive Council has been a long-held aspiration of mine, and I am thrilled to finally be a part of it. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all of you for entrusting me with this opportunity to lead.

During my time as a student at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, my instructors imparted valuable wisdom regarding the potential isolation that can accompany a career in dentistry. They emphasized the importance of joining the county dental association immediately after graduation to maintain connections within the dental community. This advice has resonated with me, and as a dentist for the past 15 years, I have made attending our monthly Clark County Dental Society (CCDS) meetings a top priority. These gatherings not only provide an avenue to earn continuing education (CE) credits but also serve as a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with cherished old friends and colleagues. In our fast-paced daily lives, it can be challenging to find time for these meaningful connections, making our CCDS meetings truly special.

This year brings a renewed sense of excitement as we prepare to convene in a new location (TBA)! I extend a warm invitation to each and every one of you to join us for our monthly meetings. Your presence and participation will contribute to the vibrancy of our dental community. I eagerly anticipate the pleasure of seeing you there.
