PRESIDENT

Gerald R. Karr, DDS Nashville, Tennessee

Gerald (Jerry) R. Karr retired from orthodontics in September 2018 after forty-four years in practice. He graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in 1974 where he was a member of the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honorary Fraternity and as a senior, he was awarded the Faculty Award, the Psi Omega Scholastic Achievement Award, the Alpha Omega Scholastic Excellence Award, and the Certificate of Honor. He graduated with a Master of Science in Orthodontics in June 1976. Because he had been deferred from military service since 1970, he was drafted immediately after graduation. He served for three years at Spangdahlem Air Force Base in Germany as the orthodontist for three regional dental clinics. Being stationed in Europe opened many opportunities to travel and that love of traveling has remained a large part of his family life ever since. In 1979 Dr. Karr bought the practice of retiring orthodontist, William Beaumont in Clarksville, Tennessee. That practice grew and expanded to two locations with two full time orthodontists. Since joining the ADA right after his graduation in 1974, Dr. Karr became immediately active in organized dentistry. He served as TDA Speaker of the House for six years and four years as the editor of the TDA Journal. He has had numerous articles and editorials published, and he is the recipient of the TDA Fellowship Award and the TNAGD Humanitarian Award. He and Sandra had the privilege of accompanying past ADA President, Malcolm Overby, as part of a delegation to the USSR to study the state of dentistry in the Soviet Union. Dr. Karr has been a Fellow in the ICD since 1994 and is also a Fellow of the ACD and the Pierre Fauchard Academy. As a Regent and, now as an officer, he had the opportunity to chair numerous ICD USA committees and task forces, including the Projects Committee, Membership Committee, Strategic Planning Committee, Governance Committee, and Executive Committee. As Chair of the Membership Committee, he developed a Strategic Plan for Membership Recruitment and Retention and authored the USA Membership Recruitment and Retention Manual. Dr. Karr has been married for over 53 years to his childhood sweetheart, Sandra. They have three married children and seven grandchildren under the age of 8. They enjoy many things together including grandkids, Bible study, travel, motorcycling and, most recently, 4x4 overlanding. The Karr family supports the ICD’s motto “Serving Others”. He has served as Chair of the Good Samaritan Clinic which provides dental care for the underserved of Montgomery County, Tennessee. Dr. Karr sees his opportunities to serve on overseas missions as the most satisfying part of his dental career. From 1983 to 2012 he and Sandra and their children made many dental mission trips to Honduras, Brazil, Ghana, and Southeast China.

Her dedication to dentistry was further recognized in 2012, Dr. Martin was named the Texas AGD Dentist of the Year. In 2011, the ADA recognized her leadership and awarded her the prestigious Golden Apple Award. The American Association of Women Dentists proudly presented their most prestigious award, the Lucy Hobbs Taylor Award by the American Association of Women Dentists (AAWD) in 2014 on the basis of achievement in civic, cultural, humanitarian and academic areas for significant service to dentistry.

MASTER FELLOW (POSTHUMOUS 2021)

Bettie R. McKaig, DDS Raleigh, North Carolina

Dr. Bettie R. McKaig’s service to the ICD USA Section began in 2005 when she was appointed as the District 16 North Carolina Deputy Regent, Treasurer and Leadership Coordinator. She continuously served in three District 16 positions through 2018, relinquishing only her role as Deputy Regent when she was elected as the District 16 Vice Regent (2013-2014), followed by a four-year term as the District 16 Regent (2015-2018). During her tenure, she was instrumental in creating and growing the esteemed Bettie R. McKaig International Student Experience Program. Concurrent to her ICD USA Section responsibilities, Dr. McKaig began serving as a Councilor for the Worldwide College in 2011 and subsequently served in numerous important roles for the College, including Ad Hoc Strategic Planning Co-Chair, Membership Committee Chair and Awards Committee Chair. She eventually served as Strategic Plan Liaison to the Executive Committee, which was a new and vital role positioned to maintain the College Strategic Plan that was implemented by Bettie just one year prior. Her dedication and leadership skills were recognized at that level, culminating in her election as the first female ICD International President in 2019. During Bettie's presidential year, she led a strong campaign to revitalize the ICD Strategic Plan into a framework of organizational directives. She diligently contributed hours of her time into creative thinking, strategic discussions, and committee meetings, all to produce goals and objectives that would lead the College into its next century of success. Bettie was a lifelong leader in organized dentistry and her list of accolades in the ADA, North Carolina Dental Society, North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners, and many other professional organizations, is too long to list. Many times, Bettie’s accomplishments are preceded by the “first woman”, which indicates what a true leader she was and how she spent her life advocating for women in dentistry to move to the forefront and develop a voice in organized dentistry. She was a special teacher and educator at the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry as an adjunct professor where her impact with students lasted long after they graduated. They felt her strong caring and would often reach out to her when important professional and life decisions came up. With all her professional accomplishments, Bettie’s character was what made her special. She loved people and she genuinely was interested in the lives of her friends and family. She had a special way of inspiring people with whom she came in contact to raise themselves to new levels. She was a strong advocate for pursuing excellence in all areas of life. She was a lifelong travel adventurer who traveled because she loved the interactions with the special people she would encounter. She managed to touch many lives in her travels as well and kept friends around the world. The International College of Dentists and the entire dental community lost an amazing leader and colleague with the sudden passing of Dr. Bettie R. McKaig on February 4, 2020.
