When I proudly talk about our branch with new members, I tell them: our branch recognizes that the dynamics and culture of dentistry are changing. We make every effort to welcome and embrace this diversity by keeping an open mind and remembering collectively that all members have the potential to add value, if given the opportunity. This year, I plan to create opportunities with the hope that it will encourage more members to stay involved, meet with more colleagues and have fun at our branch.
