The Toothsayer


A message from NJDAA President

The officers and members of NJDAA want to wish all of our members a wonderful holiday season. The ADAA is moving forward with our new management team, Kellen. It is a great group to work with and they are very proactive in working to make ADAA a visible force in the dental world!! As stated at the ADAA Annual meeting, there is now a Board of Directors, currently there are eight members. We look forward to their leadership direction.

NJDAA had investigated options to hold an in-person Annual Session and found that cost is prohibitive. We want to make sure we can reach the majority of the membership and an in-person meeting would be a large out of pocket expense. 

We would love suggestions on topics and speakers for Annual Session. If you ever thought about presenting a lecture and wanted some help getting started, please contact myself, Tracy or Theresa and we would be happy to mentor you and you could use NJDAA Annual Session as your first speaking experience!

Thank you for being a member of ADAA and being a part of making dental assisting the great profession that it is today!
