President’s Invitation

you in

Baltimore!

Dear Colleague:

First, I’d like to thank you. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to read about the Academy of General Dentistry’s 57th Annual Meeting & Exhibits. We’re going to make it well worth your time. AGD2009baltimore promises to offer you more. More top-notch speakers and state-of-the-art participation courses, including a live patient course; some are even being hosted at the University of Maryland Dental School in Baltimore. More exciting events like the Opening Session with Cal Ripken Jr., or a game at Camden Yards. But most of all, we promise to create more memories for you, your family, and your colleagues. This meeting will add even more to my AGD Baltimore memories. I received my AGD Fellowship Award here in 1995. At the same AGD Annual Meeting & Exhibits, I was honored to receive the Distinguished Service Award from the AGD. I changed history as the first woman to receive the award in 1995. As you may know, I’ve continued that trend as the first female president of the AGD. As the first female leading this great organization, I’ve had an amazing year. Baltimore will be the culmination of my historic year, and I look forward to sharing those moments with you. Many of you are coming to celebrate a professional accomplishment receiving an AGD achievement award. The AGD is creating an incredible celebration for your landmark event in an American landmark - the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum. I hope you’ll join me in registering for AGD2009baltimore and planning to experience more than ever before at the AGD’s 57th Annual Meeting & Exhibits. Paula S. Jones, DDS, FAGD
