PRESIDENT'S MESSAGES | SUMMER 2007
By: Tony Giacobazzi
Learning from Each Other
I was fortunate enough to be able to attend our AADMRT Spring Seminar the weekend of April 27, at the Airport Hilton in Oakland, California. The meeting was hosted by Merry Hampton. Thank you, Merry, for contributing the many hours necessary for phone calls, planning, and endless preparation. The success of this conference was a direct result of your great efforts. This organization continues to grow in its professional importance because of dedicated people like you.
Those of us that attended were engaged by a myriad of topics from professional and highly informative speakers. The diverse range of topics included Orthodontics, Forensic Dentistry, Sleep Apnea, iDent Radiographic Guides, and 3D Imaging. Equally invaluable were the opportunities to share in meaningful conversations with peers. We learn so much from each other!
What becomes so evident to me as I reflect on the speaker's topics and peer conversations is how quickly information and technology is changing within our industry. Keeping on the cutting edge, for many of us, is a constant challenge. I am reminded of previous presidents' writing in Currents on this same exact issue.
In some or our "peer discussions," we have thought about how helpful it might be to have a platform for exchanging information. And what place is more suitable than in our very own periodical, Currents? Examples of what we might be able to share:
So, please direct your contributions to President's Message-Peer Topics and email to:
Camille Mayorga firstname.lastname@example.org or

Lastly, but very importantly, please clear your calendar for the 29th Annual AADMRT Convention which is being held in San Antonio, Texas on October 11-13. Kim Franks is hosting the convention and has rooms reserved at the Sheraton Gunter Hotel located across from the beautiful River Walk. Don't miss this opportunity to experience some of that legendary "hospitality." I hope to see you all there.
