President’s Message
by Peter M. Tufton, D.D.S. – NODA President


It’s that time of year again. Some call it, Summertime Blues, but it doesn’t mean all you have to do is work and can’t play as the Eddie Cochran lyrics imply. Each year, you can hang out with your fellow NODA and LDA friends at the summer events. The annual LDA Summer Conference at the Sandestin Gulf & Beach Resort, FL from June 19-22, 2019, is a good example of a summertime activity. There is nothing better than great continuing education in the morning, then hanging around the pool and having drinks with your compatriots in the afternoon. Also, don’t forget golf, fishing and the white sand beaches for family time. Another excellent choice is the Louisiana Dental Association’s Foundation Fishing Rodeo held at the Sand Dollar Marina in Grand Isle, Louisiana on July 18-20, 2019. We need to see NODA members bring in a trophy fish!

The New Orleans Dental Conference/Louisiana Dental Association’s Annual Session was a great success this year, thanks to the efforts of our chairwoman Dr. Gizelle Richard and her outstanding committee. We appreciate Dr. Glenn Dubroc, Jr. for his commitment to the conference over the years. Attendance was up and the exhibitors are looking forward to next year’s conference. It is never too early to mark your calendar for next year’s conference. Dr. James E. Burns will chair the event on May 7-9, 2020 at the Hilton Riverside hotel. Next year’s theme “2020 Vision of Dentistry’s Future” The Conference always needs volunteers, so consider participating next year.

With summer ending, New Orleans Dental Association is ready to start its General Membership meetings again. The first meeting will be held September 18th at Jack Dempsey restaurant. See you there!
