Jeff Kemp and Carolyn Tomczyk-Kemp are proud of their daughter Catherine, who bicycled from New York City to San Francisco to spread awareness and raise money for cancer research. Catherine inspired her dad enough that Jeff has taken up riding as well.
Jeff, Eric Eisen and Chris Hall were pie throwing targets during a fundraising effort for Catherine’s ride. As you can see, the pie throwing line must have been pretty long.
Mike Higgins enjoyed his recent trip to San Francisco. He attended an anesthesia conference. Mike’s daughter, Lindsay, was accepted as a fellow in pain management with the University of Illinois Department of Anesthesiology after she finishes her anesthesia residency at Tulane. His son, Mitch, just started graduate school, pursuing an MBA at DePaul University.
We extend a warm welcome to Justin Welke. He is excited to join the practice of Mike Schroeder and associates.
Paul Litvin has relocated his practice from Des Plaines to Rolling Meadows.
We were so lucky to have some of our members involved at the American Dental Association Annual Session in New Orleans this past October. Hugo Bertagni finished his fourth year as chair of Exhibits. Vicki Ursitti, Ed Segal and Mike Durbin served as delegates.
Joseph Baldassano was honored with a fellowship in the American College of Dentists. He received this honorary degree Oct. 31 in New Orleans prior to the ADA Annual Session.
Jerry Pisano is enjoying his retirement and his wine. He became a certified specialist of wine, which includes six months of study and a written exam. We may see him as a sommelier sometime. Jerry is also creating beautiful paintings with acrylics.
It is wonderful to have members of our branch present lectures at the 2014 Midwinter Meeting. Petra von Heimburg will discus legal ethics, Joseph Baldassano will present a lecture on nonsurgical retreatment root canal therapy, and John Dzakovich and Robert Oslak will present a program on non-carious lesions.
Renee Pappas and Mike Dubin recently returned from London where they visited their son, Peter, who is attending the University of Notre Dame. While overseas, they visited the British Museum and saw the Rosetta Stone and some of the Greek sculptures from the Parthenon, including the Caryatid (one of six) from the Erechtheion. When they weren’t touring antiquities, they enjoyed tea time!
Jeff Socher is involved with the CDS Foundation Clinic in Wheaton. He is calling upon branch members to volunteer performing dentistry. Your financial support is also appreciated.
I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays, and send best wishes to all for a very healthy and happy 2014!
