Example President's Message (for correct spacing in the newsletter)

The Middlesex County Dental Society Membership Committee has focused on creating programs for incoming MCDS dentists and for those MCDS dentists who have been in practice for 5 years or less. First, the Membership Committee has organized a process to help welcome new members to our dental society. Senior MCDS members have volunteered to contact incoming new members, offered to facilitate their introduction to their colleagues at the general meeting, and explain the values of membership in organized dentistry. If you are contacted by a member of the MCDS Board of Trustees, please consider participating in our “New Member Welcoming” project. MCDS thanks Dr. Scott Galkin and Dr. Ethan Glickman for developing this noteworthy project.
Secondly, MCDS is developing study clubs that are targeted to all dentists who have been practicing five years or less. Each study club will be limited to about 8 members. The topics and the meeting time and location will be decided upon by the members of each study club. A senior MCDS member will initially assist in the organization of each study club. Senior MCDS dentists and specialists will be available to lecture on specific topics. Please contact the MCDS Executive Secretary, Marlene Glickman, for further information. Please take advantage of this great member benefit.
Two nationally recognized dentists will lecture MCDS members in April. At our April general membership meeting, Dr. Michael Glick, will speak on “Emerging Infectious Diseases”. In January 2005, Dr. Glick was appointed as the editor of the Journal of the American Dental Association. For the past 92 years, there have only been 11 editors of JADA, the most prominent dental publication in the world. Dr. Glick is the professor and chair of the Department of Diagnostic Sciences at UMDNJ. He has published more than 100 articles, book chapters and monographs on topics related to oral medicine.
At the MCDS full day CE course on Wednesday, April 19, Dr. David Garber will speak on Esthetic Success --- ‘By Design’. Dr. Garber has postdoctoral training in both periodontics and fixed prosthodontics. Dr. Garber lectures extensively on multidisciplinary approaches to optimizing esthetics. This course will provide 7 CEU credits for only $65 for MCDS members. Your staff members are also invited to attend this course.
