Welcome back! I hope everyone had a relaxing summer.
It was a busy summer for Beth Damas. She enjoyed a vacation in Disney with her husband, Scott, and their children, Caroline and Caden. To top it off, Beth also became a partner with Valdimir Tismensky under the new name of Southwest Endodontics.
If that wasn’t enough, Beth also became a Diplomat of the American Board of Endodontics after taking the oral exam in St. Louis, completing a case exam and a written online exam. Yes, I feel inadequate!
Speaking of new partnerships, Nick Cudney and Shane Doot are in the process of forming one. Nick has declared himself a “permanent member of the community.” Welcome Nick, we’re happy you’re here for the long-haul!
Joe Unger and his wife, Sue, recently returned from a Rhine River cruise with the SIU alumni group. Joe said it was the best cruise he’s been on. I already have it on my bucket list.
Bob Unger and his wife, Dorothy, left their home of 60 years and have moved into Bethlehem Woods assisted living in LaGrange Park. Dorothy celebrated her 92nd birthday at their new residence. God bless her!
John Kozal has some ambitious daughters. Anastasia is on a medical mission trip to Ecuador with Ministry International World. Natasha, who is only 11 years old, received a scholarship to the Chicago National Association of Dance Masters. Can we all say prima ballerina?
My family and I – including my father-in-law in from Australia – spent three weeks in Italy. I must confess my favorite was Rome, followed by the Amalfi Coast. The food and wine were fabulous too! We are definitely going back for a repeat performance!
One last word, if you haven’t gone to our branch meetings lately, I invite you to come back. It’s a great way to connect with your colleagues and earn some CE. If it’s your first meeting, or your first in a long time, call or email me and I’ll look out for you! See you all soon.
