Congratulations to Cheryl Watson-Lowry and Melanie Watson-Montgomery on their fellowships in the Academy of Dentistry International (ADI). They were honored Oct. 30, during the American Dental Association’s Annual Session in New Orleans. ADI is an international honor society for dentists, promoting social responsibility in the dental profession. We congratulate them on this high achievement.
Education: Rodney Blaney earned his dental degree in 1986 from the Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine.
Family and Practice: Dr. Blaney is married to Rosiland Palmer-Blaney. He practices in the South Shore neighborhood in Chicago.
Outside of dentistry, I enjoy: traveling, exercise, live music and summers in Chicago. I also collect watches.
My goal for the coming year is: to enthusiastically grow our branch membership and strengthen the relationships between senior dentists and new dentists. I hope to involve more graduates with our branch as we offer hands-on continuing education sessions with new products and CPR re-certification. I want to be vigilant in keeping our branch members informed and involved as issues emerge that impact our profession. I see a great and exciting year ahead.
