We celebrated our Installation of Officers May 3 at The Boarding House. The evening was filled with great food and drink and of course fun! We honored Alice Boghosian as outgoing president. Cissy Furusho and Mary Hayes installed our board, sharing with us inspirational quotes and fun prizes that will help us in the upcoming year.
Our board for the upcoming year is: Lynse Briney, president; Amy VanFossen, president-elect; Josh Ries, vice president; Lindsey Yates, recording secretary; Richard Leyba, branch correspondent; and Agata Skiba, treasurer.
Our board is gearing up for an exciting year! We have quite a lineup this year for dinner meetings, with topics ranging from advocacy to access to care to pediatric dentistry.
We also have an event for new dentists planned for Oct. 23 that focuses on practice ownership. Please join us for the season! Contact our dinner chair, Chelsea Jones, for more information.
Education: Lynse Briney earned her dental degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry in 2005. She went on to be certified in pediatric dentistry in 2011 and completed her master’s degree in oral sciences in 2012.
Family and Practice: Dr. Briney is married to Brent Widler. They have two sons, Lucas and Zack.
Outside of dentistry, I enjoy: spending time with my family, traveling and gardening.
My goal for the coming year is: to engage and welcome new members while keeping things fresh and exciting for existing members. I’ve tried to put together a program that features aspects of dentistry that are near and dear to my heart. I hope that by sharing some of my passions with my colleagues, it will spark their interest in these areas or help them realize their own passions.
