Happy Anniversary!

Posted by Paul on 3/15/2013 4:47:00 PM


Let's kick start the weekend with a celebration! My blog is a year old today. This is post #82. I have tried to give you, the members, a little taste of the buffet that is the MDA. I have taken you on my travels around the state. I have prodded you with the occasional challenge. I have promoted the heck out of certain events (MOMOM, GKAS, etc.). I have tried to share humor and sincerity. This is more like the social page than the editorial section. I hope you have enjoyed it.
Often times I wonder if I'm speaking into the void so don;t hesitate to tell me what you think and what you would like to see more of. I'm happy to adjust and I will always keep the trusty iPhone camera ready to snap. Send your thoughts to paul@modental.org.
Thanks for your support and have a great weekend!

CDS Installation

Posted by Paul on 3/15/2013 4:33:00 PM


Today's trip to a component meeting was just around the corner as the Central Dental Society met here in Jefferson City. After a full morning of CE, me and a host of others joined them for lunch and presentations. Greg Russell from MDIS spoke briefly and presented a check. Vicki, Patrick, and I gave updates on all fronts to keep the members in the know and Dr. Barbour once again passed out the hardware. She thanked Dr. Corbin Marchack for his service as president and swore in the new president, Dr.William Burnsand the new vice president, Dr. Fred Christman.

SWDS Installation

Posted by Paul on 3/8/2013 4:05:00 PM


I had good company last night as I drove to Joplin to partake in the SWDS installation meeting. It was nice to be back among the Joplin doctors for ordinary business and not tornado related business. Everyone looked good and was optimistic about the on going recovery.
MDA President, Dr. Lynne Barbour joined me and Vicki for the trip down. Vicki updated the members on legislative issues and the governance task force. I spoke a little about MOMOM and Dr. Barbour handled other business including the installation of Dr. Michael Patterson as the new SWDS president and the commendation of out going president, Dr. Brad Laird.

GKAS - Spring Edition

Posted by Paul on 3/1/2013 3:47:00 PM


March got off to a great start today with the spring edition of Give Kids a Smile in St Louis. It was another wonderful day of MDA members and cheerful volunteers treating kids in a well run clinic. These young smiles are infectious and I think the kids are often braver than the adults.
I enjoyed escorting patients from dental triage down the hall to hygiene. Dr. Rebecca Carman was one of the triage dentists and she did a fabulous job. She has a very natural way with children and put more than one smile on a young face. As I walked around the rest of the clinic, it was humming on all fronts.
I know GKAS executive director, Joan Allen, would join me in saluting and thanking all the sponsors and dental volunteers and a cast of many more who make this twice yearly event such a solid success.
