Winter very reluctantly let up its icy grip on Chicago and the members of the West Suburban branch have been busier than ever. So much has happened over the past few months and we have a lot to update you all on.
Robert Banks had an amazing time visiting his daughter in Tukiak, AK. He figured that the Chicago winter wasn’t cutting it and wanted to see where the real action was. Little did he know that he would escape the “polar vortex” and experience better weather in Alaska than in Chicago! Bob enjoyed awesome views and said his stay was quite relaxing.
Congratulations to Marmar Modarressi and her husband, Ali, in welcoming their first child, Tala, born Nov. 30.
Our past two branch meetings were excellent, setting new attendance records.
At our January 14 meeting, we listened to an engaging presentation by Kent Knoernschild on occlusal loading and prosthetic complications.
Congratulations to the winners of the Samsung Galaxy tablets that evening: Karen Darley, Maria DeFilippis and Bill Kleiber. Thank you all for supporting our sponsors by giving them your time and attention.
Our March 11 branch meeting was held at the Naperville Country Club. It was also our Clinic Night. The buffet dinner was excellent, offering a wide variety of delicious foods including a salad bar, filet of beef carving station, Asian food bar, Chicago-style hot dog stand and everyone’s favorite, a chocolate fountain.
We were happy to honor Dan Pesavento of Pesavento & Pesavento Ltd. CPAs with a plaque in recognition of the company’s long-time support and commitment to serving our branch members. Again, we thank them for all of their support over the years.
As we have done at all of our branch meetings this year, we gave away prizes to three of our members. Congratulations to Doug Kay, Leslie Sanders and Amit Sud; we hope you all enjoy your iPad Minis!
We congratulate Kelly Kirtland’s new associate Nira Patel, on passing her oral boards. Nira is now a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Kelly served for a second time as an oral boards examiner for the ABPD in Dallas, TX (but obviously could not be Dr. Patel’s examiner).
Kelly also announced that she earned her Dental Educator Certificate through the University of the Pacific’s Benerd School of Education and Dugoni School of Dentistry.
We also send congratulations to Kelly’s assistant, Nina Giamberdino, on the birth of a healthy baby girl, Nadia Marie, Dec. 8.
Don’t forget to join us June 4 for our annual golf outing at Old Oak Country Club in Homer Glen!
