AADA Members,

AADA Leadership Council is excited to announce the hiring of our Executive Staff, Kelsey Bulnes and Lissette Zuknick! Their extensive association management experience will help the AADA grow and achieve our goals. Both Kelsey and Lissette also have the ability to understand our members as they are both married to dentists themselves. Our central office has moved from the windy city to the sunshine state of Florida. Please help the AADA leadership welcome them into the AADA family.
