Ronald Testa, DDS, a pediatric dentist who practices in Flossmoor, was installed as president of the Chicago Dental Society on Sunday, November 14, in a ceremony held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. As president, he will serve a one-year term, to commence in January 2005.
The society, which was established in 1864, has more than 4,100 members in Cook, Lake and DuPage Counties, making it the largest local society of the American Dental Association. In addition, there are more than 3,000 associate members of the society residing throughout the world.
Dr. Testa received his dental degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago's College of Dentistry, where he also pursued advanced training in pediatric dentistry.
As president of the Chicago Dental Society, Dr. Testa will preside over the society's annual Midwinter Meeting, held February 24-27, 2005, at McCormick Place. The meeting, which ranks among the top conventions in the U.S., attracts more than 30,000 dental professionals each year and has an economic impact of more than $40 million.
Dr. Testa selected the theme of A Dental Symphony: Opus 140 for the 2005 meeting, a reference to both his love of classical music and the increasing need of dental professionals to work in concert in order to deliver the best patient care.
He resides in Frankfort with his wife Barbara.
