Call for Officer/Trustee Nominations and Council Member Volunteers

The American Dental Assistants Association is planning for the future and requests your assistance in nominating potential leaders for the coming year. All of us probably know an ADAA member who is highly motivated, organized, and thoughtful with a passion for dental assisting and the ADAA. These are all qualities that are necessary for successful leaders.

Do You Remember Your Dental Assisting School Experience?

As a displaced survivor of Hurricane Katrina, I like many others had been thrown in a situation where our lives as we knew it had been destroyed. I had invested 30 years to teaching, 25 of those years were with special needs children. I worked with a multidisciplinary team consisting of a school psychologist, educational diagnostician, speech therapist, social worker, physical therapist and occupational therapist. My job as an adapted physical education evaluator was to evaluate and recommend placement in the least restrictive environment. That was my day job. Most teachers had second and sometimes third jobs outside of teaching to make ends meet. At one of my regular dental appointments, my dentist’s receptionist had to leave because of illness and he did not have anyone to answer the phones and greet his patients. I volunteered to help him out and was asked if I could continue after school.

My Journey to Fellowship and Beyond

I like to describe the road through the ADAA Fellowship/Mastership program as education excellence. Having been a dental assistant for 32 years, I am always learning something new. This world of dentistry is ever changing, and if you want to be the best you can be, you’ve got to keep up. I believe that every assistant that takes their career seriously needs to go through the program. It shows you are dedicated and determined, it makes you stand out as a true professional. As an educator, what better way to lead than by example?
