Congratulations to Mike Durbin, who was recently installed as president of the Illinois Society of Orthodontists. Mike will also be traveling to New Orleans to serve as a delegate for the American Association of Orthodontists House of Delegates. This will be his third year as a delegate and the first year that he serves as the vice chair of the Midwestern Society of Orthodontists delegation.
We are saddened to learn of the passing of our long standing colleague Petar Milenkovich, 80, in September 2013. He was a graduate of the University of Belgrade (Serbia) Dental School in 1961.
Upon his arrival in the U.S., Petar attended the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) College of Dentistry and graduated in 1969. While at UIC, he was an associate professor in the Cleft Palate Department, where he pursued his passion for orthodontics in the field of orthodontic-prosthodontic collaboration for the treatment of craniofacial anomalies. For the remainder of his 50 years in practice, he was devoted to his private dental practice in the northwest suburbs. Our condolences go to his family.
Congratulations to Joseph Baldassano, who was installed as president of the Edgar D. Coolidge Endodontic Study Club for the 2014-15 year.
It has been an exciting year for Victoria Ursitti. For spring break, she went to Deer Valley, UT, with her son, Gianni, and husband, Patrick. They enjoyed great skiing and went dogsledding. They each took turns leading the team and while mushing, they met up with lots of native wildlife: moose, deer, hawks and wild turkeys. However, none was as interesting as meeting Mitt Romney in the local supermarket.
After a lot of time and hard work, Victoria celebrated the grand re-opening of her beautiful new office space May 29. Her practice worked with Domani Builders and was very proud that they did not hire a decorator, but chose all the décor and finishes themselves. One of the special moments was having her son, Gianni, be a part of the ribbon untying ceremony with the mayor of Arlington Heights, Tom Hayes. It was a great party and a wonderful office!
A warm welcome to Mary Haupers, who acquired Richard Butterly’s practice after he retired. She has been very busy remodeling and creating her unique office.
This summer, Maria Fournier attended the Joint Symposium hosted by the American Association of Endodontists, American Association of Periodontists and the American College of Prosthodontists. Speakers and attendees from all over the world gathered at the Swissôtel in Chicago for a very informative two day seminar titled “Teeth for a Lifetime: Interdisciplinary Evidence for Clinical Success.” Preservation of the natural dentition continues to be the ultimate goal!
I hope everyone had a great summer. Please forward any news to me.
