Winter break is fast approaching and all our college kids will be flocking home.
John Kozal was busy this fall driving in every direction! His daughter Tatiana is at Millikin University working toward a degree in nursing. Meanwhile, her twin sister, Anastasia, is attending the University of Kentucky’s pre-dental program. Maybe Dad can retire sometime in the not-too-distant future!
Peggy Richardson and I attended the Illinois State Dental Society’s Finance and Fashion event at the American Dental Association building. Speaker Ellen Rogin, author of Great with Money, discussed finances. Noel Cellini presented fashion guidelines and helped us distinguish between fashion and style. Ladies: it’s all about the shoes!
Congratulations to Steve Nicorata, who welcomed two new dentists into his practice: his son, Dan, and Dan’s wife, Erin. Now, Steve can relax. I’ll be looking for vacation photos from Steve!
Ammar Adam opened a new office in Valparaiso.
Andy Moormann is operating a fully-equipped mobile operatory van. He’ll be traveling to nursing homes and his van is wheelchair accessible!

Brian Karshen and his wife, Kim, have been kitchen remodeling in between vacationing in Puerto Rico and visiting his sister and her new baby in Los Angeles.

Outside of dentistry, I enjoy: Coaching my kids’ sports team and family outings.
My goal for the coming year is: to conduct meetings with topics that appeal to all of the branch members and to encourage our younger members to become more involved in the branch and organized dentistry in general.
