A Message from the President

Dear Colleagues,

It is an amazing and dynamic time at the College. This last year we have been diligently working to provide the best CE content for our membership. The always popular free webinars, which are included with your membership dues, showcased some excellent speakers on a variety of topics including: obstructive sleep apnea, ankyglossia, and vaccinations.

We also held our first ever Leadership Conference with Susan Salgado, PhD in New York City, which helped educate members how to effectively be leaders in their dental offices and how to build a culture which supports that goal. Upcoming Study Clubs include Dr. Cathy Flaitz in Charleston, SC, Dr. Asgeir Sigurdsson in Sarasota, FL and Dr. Tim Wright in Banff, Canada all look to be great opportunities to not only learn in a small format, but also spend time and get to know amazing colleagues from all over.

Aside from educational offerings, your Board of Directors is busy this Fall collaborating for another strategic planning session to evaluate what we are doing well, what we can do better and what more we can do to support the board-certified pediatric dentist. As we complete this session we will be sure to share with you what we are working on for the future.

The College is evolving and I am excited for what the future holds as we continue to provide exceptional educational experiences to our members. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you every have question, comments or suggestions for us.


Thank you, 

Hakan O. Koymen, DDS, MS
President, College of Diplomates of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry
