Although 2020 has brought about significant changes in our profession, the importance of organized dentistry has remained. As we face the future, coming together is more important now than ever before. We need to ensure that we are providing the children of Virginia the safest care possible during the COVID-19 pandemic, that our practices have the foundation to weather financial uncertainty, and that our professional organizations are inclusive and committed to racial justice. As president of the VAPD, I will work to increase membership and participation through outreach to our colleagues across the state, organize relevant CE opportunities, and seek feedback from our membership on how the VAPD can better serve them in the coming year. I currently serve on the AAPD and VDA Council of Government Affairs and NVDS Executive Committee as Legislative Co-Chair. I am an associate pediatric dentist in a private practice in Falls Church, VA.
