President’s Message  

It is a great honor to be accepting this position. I'd like to thank all those who came before me, especially Danette, Wayne, Jim, Rob, Rick and Paul. I know I have big shoes to fill. I think Danette's done an amazing job this past year. I'd also like to thank Kris and his committee for putting on a great symposium. I greatly enjoy my involvement with the Academy for Sports Dentistry, and the openness and willingness of everyone to help is what sets this organization apart from others that I have been involved in. It's provided me an opportunity to meet people from all over the world, which I have found extremely helpful with my involvement in sports dentistry. I especially also want to thank Doug Lambert for getting me involved in the Academy when I took over full responsibility as the Team Dentist for the Minnesota Timberwolves.

During the next year, we will continue to build our relationships with NATA and other related organizations. I think our affiliation with Special Olympics Special Smiles was another great way to demonstrate how much we can contribute. We are looking forward to continuing to work with Greg Chang with the emphasis on the importance of healthy nutrition for the athletes we work with.
