Send it to Natacha Herard-Exorphe. Next deadline: August 1 for the September/October issue of the CDS Review.
Hopefully everyone has put this winter behind them and is looking forward to much milder temperatures ahead. We just ended a successful season for the branch. Our last speaker was Mike Engelman, on the topic of implants vs. root canal treatment. He spoke on the benefits and their long term success. This capped off a season of very interesting speakers, which by all accounts was well received by our members.
We raffled off an iPad at each meeting this year, and our last winner was Natcha Exorphe. Congratulations, Natcha.
We held our meetings this year at Olympia Fields Country Club and it has worked out well for both our members and visiting sponsors. The phrase “many hands make light work” comes to mind.
Many hands went into making this year a success, starting with branch president Joe Noetzel, along with the current board members and volunteers. We thank you for all your hard work and a job well done.
Speaking of jobs, there is no job within our branch that is too large or too small.
I invite all those practicing in the south suburbs who have not yet taken advantage of the many member benefits offered by participating in organized dentistry to GET INVOLVED.
At our April branch meeting, we invited the graduating dental hygiene class and faculty from Prairie State College to attend. The students presented table clinics on a variety of topics.
It is a great opportunity for graduates to network with experienced dentists in the area. We had a lot of fun and our event was well received by dentists and students alike.
Robert Moll has been our branch dinner chair for the better part of 15 years. He will be installed as president of the Dental Arts Club of Chicago Oct. 4.
Bob, we’ve greatly appreciated all your efforts these many years and we wish you the very best in your upcoming appointment. We know you will do a great job. Good luck with everything and we look forward to your return to the South Suburban Branch.
At our March meeting we honored distinguished service awards for those marking 30, 40 and 50 years of service to the field of dentistry.
Honored for 30 years of service were Barry Booth, Bruce Cable, Guy Gattone, Laura Sastic Lalich, George Morris, Christopher Seidel and Patricia Stifter.
Our 40-year honorees were Anil Agarwal and Robert Manasse.
Two dentists celebrated 50 years of service: Robert Noetzel (father of our branch president) and William Pakosz. The members of the South Suburban Branch send our sincere congratulations to all the honorees.
Spencer Pope was inducted into the Academy of Dentistry International. Congratulations, Spencer. He and his family also had a chance to break away from the everyday and take a trip to Walt Disney World. He and his two sons — Ethan (7) and Ian (5) — seemed to enjoy themselves.
Each year the South Suburban Branch tries to host several social activities. This year is no exception. Kevin Patterson organized a ski trip which was enjoyed by many. This year’s trip took them to Banff, Alberta, Canada. Fifteen skiers participated — the largest group to date. Past destinations have included Salt Lake City; Winter Park, CO; and northern Wisconsin to name a few. It is truly a great opportunity to spend time with colleagues and friends.
Finally, Kenneth Coffey says his son, Christopher, will be graduating from the Indiana University School of Dentistry in May. Christopher has been accepted into the graduate prosthodontic program at UIC and begins in June. Congratulations, Chris, and good luck.
A tradition of working for the dental profession. The Chicago Dental Society was organized in 1864 and incorporated in 1878. The objective of the Chicago Dental Society is to encourage the improvement of the health of the public, to promote the art and science of dentistry and to represent the intrest of the members of the profession and the public that it serves.
