Fall JDS President’s Message

Dear Jacksonville Dental Society Members (JDS),

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped me to be part of such a
prestigious group. I feel proud and honored to be the new President of the Jacksonville Dental Society. A
special thanks to our former President Dr. Christopher H. Henry, and all of the board members for their
dedication and their Exceptional Leadership.
As we know, these past few years have been a period with major changes in our Profession. We had to
accept and implement these changes, However with the support of everyone we can obtain greater
improvements to our professional progress.
We will continue to bring high quality Speakers who will share their knowledge and their state of the art
Technology. I am looking forward in working with my colleagues and the Florida Dental Association. My
goal is to help develop a place where our members can come together in a professional manner and
tackle all the challenges in our field.
This year we are very excited to announce the beginning of another great year with our “Kick off Social
event” this event will take place Thursday September 22, 2022 at the River and Post Restaurant. Our
first meeting will be held on Thursday, October 20 in our new location at the Deercreek country club in
Jacksonville. In addition, this year “Give Kids a Smile” will be held February 22 and 25 at the Jacksonville
Florida State Collage North Campus (FSCJ). Please make sure to read our monthly emails sent by our
executive director, where you will always find the schedule for the year and any updates related to our
monthly events, and Speaker topics.
Once again, thank you for the opportunity to be part of this Association and I am looking forward to
meeting and assisting you.
