Participants enjoyed a cocktail hour in the Abbott Oceanarium, with opportunities to mingle with otters, dolphins, beluga whales and sea lions. Dinner tables surrounded the Caribbean Reef for guests to enjoy the view while dinner was served.
Past president H. Todd Cubbon, who also served as chair of the Sesquicentennial Committee, and longtime CDS member Paul Kattner offered brief remarks to welcome guests. They offered encouraging words to the next generations of dentists who would lead the Society for the next 150 years.
Honored guests that night included: American Dental Association Executive Director Kathleen O’Loughlin and President Charles Norman; Illinois State Dental Society President Brian Soltys; and many past presidents of the Chicago Dental Society.
The evening ended with a bang, as guests were invited to the outdoor terrace to view fireworks over Navy Pier.
