|President's Message by Dr. Michelle Green
Welcome and congratulations! As a member of the Pierce County Dental Society, you belong to one of most vibrant dental societies anywhere. For 124 years we have been the face and voice of dentistry to this diverse community. Our local dental society is the most tangible representation of the ADA. Give Kids a Smile, Homeless Connect, Pierce County Dentists Care and Dental Health Day are just a few examples of our concern for the community. Monthly society meetings, the annual Spring Meeting and Field Day are a few
examples of our connection to each other. These interactions lead to lasting friendships, a sense of purpose and a more fulfilling career in dentistry.
Pierce County is home to some of the world's most respected clinicians and progressive practices. We practice solo, in groups, in urban and rural settings, within the military and from community clinics. Together through PCDS, we form one voice with which we can address critical issues, exert political influence, and inform and provide service to the public and one another.
Many of us pay our dues and do not engage in using the membership. The individual wonders why they belong to organized dentistry at all. This is akin to buying an automobile and never getting into the driver's seat. I urge you to grab your keys, buckle up and head out on the highway. The benefits far outweigh the small time commitment. You will meet wonderful people during your journey.
Our executive director, Cheryl Jenkins, and her assistants, Cindy Stephen and Jennifer Bunch, are available to help you get the most from your membership. As many of you already know, our staff is consistent with our dental society – the finest anywhere. Call them. They will find just the right dental vehicle specifically designed for you.
I deeply appreciate this opportunity to serve, sharing this adventure with many others who volunteer their time and talents. Please contact me whenever you wish. I look forward to meeting you.
Thanks to our Sponsors
