I hope everyone had a great fall. The branch has been quite busy over the past few months. First, however, it is with sadness that we share with you news of the death of Roger Kallal. Close friend Ed Pavlik spoke at our October meeting and gave a very heartfelt tribute. Our condolences go out to the entire Kallal family.
One of the highlights of the October meeting was the reminder of the Nov. 17 Installation of Officers, when our very own Rich Holba was installed as CDS president. Congratulations to you, Rich, and your family.
Branch meetings are not to be missed! In October, Kerry Voit discussed the graftless reconstruction of the edentulous arch. He spoke on the benefits as well as the potential risks concerning the “all on four” protocols.
We raffle off an iPad at our meetings, and October’s meeting saw Larry Jagmin take home the prize. In November, Matt Hallas spoke about immediate implant placement for optimal esthetic results.
January’s meeting features the McGill and Hill Group, LLC, presenting “How To Increase the Value of Your Dental Practice.”
Bob Bosack is sponsoring a three-part series, along with Nobel Biocare, on implants and their prosthetic reconstruction given by Mathew Hallas.
This year we had two of our members — Larry Jagmin and Greg Duffner (see Member Snap Shots) — participate in separate bicycle rides benefiting charities. Thank you both for you commitment and support of our brothers and sisters.
Finally, we at the South Suburban Branch would like to send a sincere thank you to Loren Feldner as he concluded his tenure as co-chair of ADPAC. Loren’s tireless work on behalf of the dental community is greatly appreciated. He has been appointed to the Illinois State Dental Society’s Government Affairs Committee, which I am sure he will continue to give his full energy to. Thank you, Loren, for your service to your fellow dentists.
