Fall JDS President’s Message

President’s Message JDS

Hello Jacksonville Dentist! I would like to welcome you all to an exciting year we have planned for the Jacksonville Dental Society. I believe this organization is very important in the Jacksonville dental community, connecting us outside of the office.

We’ve worked hard to get a slate of engaging speakers for our CE dinners this year. On September 7, Ira Langstein will be travelling from White Plains, NY to discuss Digital Planning for Optimal Implant Treatments. In October Michael Dorociak, Chairman of the Board for Gordon Christenson’s Clinician’s Report, will cut through the marketing to discuss the best materials and techniques for your restorative practice. Dr. Bhattacharyya from the University of Florida will discuss modern treatment and diagnostics concepts in Oral Pathology.

I would also like to emphasize the social aspects of JDS. We will have multiple social events at local restaurants, starting on Thursday August 3 at Wicked Barley, and have tentative plans for a golf event in the fall.

Our new Vice President, Nathaniel Williams, will be leading the 2024 Give Kids a Smile Event at FSCJ North Campus. If you have any dated handpieces or dental equipment, please consider donating to the Give Kids’ a Smile Event.

Thank you for allowing me to serve the local dental community this year! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Alex Fetner

President, Jacksonville Dental Society
