November is the time that SDDS begins to line up our calendar for next year, our volunteer placement on committees is completed, the new chairs are approved by the Board of Directors and they begin to roll out our 2017 plan. Last year, more than 300 SDDS members participated in committees, projects and events. Please get involved—we’d love your input and participation!
You, as an SDDS member, have an opportunity to contribute valuable knowledge and expertise for the betterment of your practice, organized dentistry and the profession of dentistry. Committee work activities provide the pulse for responding to the ever-changing issues that we face today and a chance to anticipate needs and shape our future. If you have never been involved in an SDDS committee, all you have to do is call and ask any member of the SDDS staff. We also have positions available should you like to serve on the Sacramento District Dental Foundation, which is the heart of SDDS. The Foundation organizes Smiles for Kids and other programs that give back to people who are underserved in our community.
Included in this issue you will find a sign up form describing the opportunities—in detail. So, come, jump in and enjoy working with your peers!
