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.
Welcome everyone to our 2018-2019 MACD season. This year we have another excellent line-up of speakers. When you look at the quality of our speakers and the cost of hearing these speakers at other venues, it is easy to see the tremendous value we each receive from our dues. I hope you also recognize the value of regularly getting together with other dental professionals committed to learning more and improving the care of their patients.
For quite a few years our MACD leaders have been pleading with our group to invite more guests so we have more possible future members. Some of you have stepped up to the plate and done just that. I applaud you. Some of those invited guests have gone on to become members. However, due to many of our members being near retirement age, the prediction of a drop in dues-paying members has unfortunately come true. Now is the time for each of us to act and invite guests and not leave it up to someone else to invite new possible members.
Although I have had guests attend in the past, I must admit it has been too many years since a guest has accompanied me. I personally am making a commitment to invite quality dental professionals until I am successful in getting them to attend. As both your president and someone who cares about the future of this organization, I encourage each one of you to do the same. We do not need huge numbers of new members, but unless we all make a conscious effort, we will continue to see our numbers decline which jeopardizes the future of the MACD.
In closing, I would encourage you to contact me if you ever have any questions or concerns about the MACD. I look forward to seeing you all in September!
