Dear Readers

I have some great news to share with you. The National Association of Dental Plans (NADP) has reelected me to their Board of Directors to serve a second three year term (2010-2012) with the group.

NADP is the largest non-profit, national trade association focused exclusively on the entire dental benefits industry, i.e. dental HMOs, dental PPOs, discount dental plans and dental indemnity products. They are the recognized leader of the dental benefits industry, which includes over 173 million covered Americans.

Service with professional organizations like the NADP compliments my work with DentaQuest as well as other dental and community organizations. I share this with you not to pat myself on the back, but to highlight the importance of collaboration within the industry as NADP’s mission –which mirrors our own - is to promote and advance the dental benefits industry to improve consumer access to affordable, quality dental care.
