Frank L. Higginbottom, DDS ~ 2012 TEXAS Meeting Chair WELCOME – IT’S ALL GOOD!! Again, this year the Council on Annual Session welcomes you to the 142nd Annual Session of the Texas Dental Association. I send you greetings from our council members and annual session staff. The TEXAS Meeting is one of the most visible dental meetings in the United States. We are so fortunate for so many years to have San Antonio as the host city. This is the 38th year that our TEXAS Meeting will take over the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and all of its great surrounding hotel venues and of course the San Antonio River Walk. Once again we have invited great educators to present at the Texas Meeting. Some are returning recognizable names, but you will be introduced to amazing new clinicians as well. As we travel and scout other dental meetings, your TDA Council on Annual Session finds many new topics and presenters for your educational programs. We have done the work for you to select the continuing education that is most beneficial for you and your staff. There will be over 200 classes presented by 100 speakers from which to make your course selections. This program allows you and your staff to complete all of your continuing education and motivational courses required by the TSBDE each year. The exhibit hall will allow you to see over 350 companies and all of the newest materials, equipment and technologies. TDA Smiles Foundation (TDASF), DENPAC Silent Auction, and the TDA Perks Program Partners will also occupy visible positions in the hall. Back by popular demand, our digital caricature artist, Doug Shannon, will draw digital portraits of attendees. Look for Doug in the TeleVox booth. A new feature for the exhibit hall will be live workshops in the hall in a glass classroom. To end each day it’s always nice to meet your staff and friends for happy hour at 4:30 p.m. in the exhibit hall. What a great way to start the evening. Thursday evening’s Texas Party, featuring The Klocks, will once again be the center of attention in Bridge Hall, just across from the exhibit hall. Don’t expect me to join the band and sing like Dr. Roger Macias, but I will be there to welcome you as the council’s guests for great music, food and drink. It’s always great to see classmates and friends from throughout the state. The tradition continues on Friday morning when TDA golfers tee off for the TDASF golf tournament—a wonderful event to support the TDASF charitable events. Continue with The Graduate of the Last Decade (GOLD) reception as a great tribute to our TDA new dentists and plan to attend your district caucuses for the election of delegates and directors to the TDA and ADA. Following all of these Friday activities, return to the Marriott Rivercenter for the alumni events where Baylor and UT grads will meet new deans, Dr. Wolinsky from Baylor and Dr. Valenza from Houston. UTHSC San Antonio grads will gather at the convention center for their alumni reception and silent auction.

Consider a visit to the TDA House of Delegates and see how the leadership of the TDA shapes the future of dentistry in Texas. What a valuable experience to see how the voice of the Texas dentist is heard and provides for our governance. This year the TDA will provide a Certification Course for Dental Assistants on Coronal Polishing, available for your staff. The lab track that was so popular last year will again be featured on Saturday morning hosted by Dr. David Little and Mr. David Avery. All of our programs are intended to appeal to a wide range of audiences which includes the dentist, dental team members, technicians and guests. The Council on Annual Session and the TDA Staff welcome you to the 2012 TEXAS Meeting. See you in San Antonio! Be there!!

NEW from Gendex!

Marie Fluent, DDS I am a General Dentist. The world that I live in is basically from the floor of the orbit to the bottom of the chin. The industry calls this “Medium Field of View” — but I call it the perfect view.

And that is because the 8 x 14 cm format captures exactly the area where I work. It is ideal for implants, endo retreats, surgery, TMJ and airway analysis. There are other 3D machines in the market that capture a significantly smaller image area and are therefore called “Small Field of View.” But I find them to be too limiting for the treatments I perform.

WELCOME

The Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Programs (CHIP) in Texas improve the health of children who might otherwise go without health care. CHIP and Medicaid help provide dental treatment to children in need. Partnered with caring dentists, these programs make a difference in children’s lives by restoring one smile at a time! On March 1, 2012, the State of Texas will begin the commercial administration of dental services in both Medicaid and CHIP through statewide administrative contracts with three dental plans: Delta Dental Insurance Company, DentaQuest USA Insurance Company, Inc., and MCNA Insurance Company. This is an exciting time for the delivery of Medicaid and CHIP dental services in Texas!
