Welcome to the
Minnesota Academy for Comprehensive Dentistry
The Minnesota Academy of Restorative Dentistry is an invitation only academy whose members represent all fields of dentistry. Our Mission is to provide a forum for members to present, study, and discuss topics in comprehensive dentistry to enhance their clinical skills, knowledge and standard of care.
I’d like to wish my best to all of our Minnesota Academy of Comprehensive Dentistry Members. I look forward to seeing everyone at our first meeting on September 20th 2019. I want to begin my message by thanking Greg Miller, our 2018-2019 president for all his hard work this past year and for his help in getting me oriented as the new president. A big thank you is also in order to Xuan Thou, our outgoing MACD secretary. She did a fabulous job as secretary and also has been a tremendous help in getting me up and running as your new president. I am quite proud of her, my former VA Dental GPR Resident.
I want to thank some of the sponsors who support our organization. Strauman Implants is helping sponsor our September 20th speaker, Dr. Brody Hildebrand , who will be presenting ”Success with Complex Interdisciplinary Treatment Plans”. Dentsply Implants is helping with the sponsorship of our January 24th speaker, Dr. Alan Douglas. Dr. Douglas will be talking about “Technological Advances That Increase the Predictability, Durability and Efficiency of Implant Restorations.” We also need to thank BioRESEARCH for their support for our organization this past year.
The MACD has a long and proud history. We have a mission of providing a forum for members to present, study, and discuss topics in comprehensive dentistry and to enhance their clinical skills, knowledge and standard of care. I know I have greatly benefited from the education as well as the fellowship this organization has provided for me. As the former director of the Minneapolis VA General Practice Dental Residency I am very grateful for the generous support the MACD has provided to Minneapolis VA Dental Practice Residency by welcoming the VA residents as guests to our MACD meetings. This experience for the residents provides an ideal model for lifelong learning and also has benefited our organization by helping to recruit new members into our fold.
I really look forward to my year as your president. With our members support we can keep this organization strong and growing into the future. Please active members and life members (OK that’s everybody) please help by inviting dental colleagues, associates and friends as guests so we can help maintain and grow this great organization.
2019-2020 MACD President
