The VDDS Executive Committee

Message from the President

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Victoria and District Dental Society, I am honored to be your president for the upcoming year. I would like to welcome you to the 2017-2018 year of scientific and social events. This year we have an excellent executive team who is excited about organizing a host of events as well as introducing online payments and registration for the membership dues and meeting RSVPs.

Social events this year will range from business meeting dinners and BBQ to the formal Christmas dinner and dance while the golf tournament and driving event in the spring continue to be very popular. These social events give us a chance to build relationships with our colleagues and get to know each other in a more personal setting. This in turn helps to foster a positive, collegial, and professional dental community.

The scientific committee works hard to provide an excellent range of continuing education topics and speakers. These events provide an opportunity to fulfill the majority of our annual continuing education requirements right here in Victoria at a very reasonable cost. Members are encouraged to invite the whole dental team to suitable events, and suggestions for future speakers are always appreciated.

This year, as with each past year, the Victoria and District Dental Society executive team is evolving with new volunteers and ideas, striving to provide the membership with great benefits and events. At the same time, we look back at our past executive teams with appreciation for the many hours of work and wisdom with which they served. Many of them have become our mentors and have invested much to make our society the envy of many other such component societies.

I, your president, and the entire executive team strive to serve the membership and our collective patients in a warm, friendly, professional, and uplifting manner. On a corporate scale, when needed, our society has spoken and will continue to speak with a loud impact on regulatory issues that affect our membership. The VDDS will continue to serve as the model of success for others and will provide opportunities to learn and grow together.
