Our first Memphis Dental Society meeting of 2016 took place on Thursday, January 21st at the East Memphis Hilton. Olivia Wann presented on “OSHA Compliance & Infection Control.” She did an excellent job highlighting the latest updates to OSHA and some areas dentists typically neglect. Unfortunately, her scheduled presentation for the following day was canceled due to inclement weather. It has been rescheduled for Friday, March 11th at the Chickasaw Country Club.
Dr. Chuck Wood, a dentist from West Memphis, along with President Dr. Mitch Godat and Dr. Scott Edwards challenged MDS members to get involved in the upcoming Mid-South Mission of Mercy. The MidMOM will be Friday and Saturday February 26th and 27th at Bellevue Baptist in Cordova. Several MDS members have been instrumental in organizing the event over the past 18 months. Over 2,000 patients will receive free dental treatment at the first ever Mission of Mercy to take place in the state of Tennessee.
We were also fortunate to have several 4th year dental students in attendance. The MDS meeting is a great opportunity for these upcoming graduates to learn more about the value of organized dentistry.
Our next MDS meeting will be Thursday, February 21st, 2016 when Jason Smith from Pro-Tech will be presenting on “What Your IT Company Should Be Doing For You.”
Have a great week!
