Presidential Address
Dr. George W. Sferra, Jr., DDS

During the past several years, as members of the House and Archives Committee, my colleague Neal Cronin and I have
reviewed the minutes and reports of the New York Academy of Dentistry that havee been compiled since our last published
history in 1974.

In that capacity I have had the opportunity to review numerous Presidential
acceptance speeches. Most have been delivered by individuals far more
eloquent than I. Many have quoted the purpose of the Academy as elucidated                        The Annals
by those visionary founders who chartered the Academy in 1921. Some have
discussed singular issues that would earmark their terms as President over the                    of Dentistry
course of the Academic Year. While there are several items that will preoccupy
my term as President, it is not my intent to discuss those items tonight.                             OFFICERS
Instead, I would like to make an observation. In reviewing the Academy
history, or any history for that matter, one is impressed by the number of
                                                                                              Dr. George W. Sferra, Jr.
issues that seem of crucial importance at the time of their occurrence, but                          President
which viewed in retrospect, turn out to be quite insignificant. Often, these
seemingly seminal events are accompanied by calls for drastic changes lest we                     Dr. Henry Chalfin
lose relevance in the changing world or fall into obsolescence. Thankfully,                        President Elect
calm voices usually surface counseling adherence to our core principals and the
ideals formulated by our founders, and as the crisis passes the wisdom of those                Anthony J. Curinga
voices is vindicated. Conversely, often seemingly insignificant events lead to               Immediate Past President
a major movement or shift on the part of the Academy and as the future
unfolds, it becomes clear that these ideas become so dominant because they
correspond with those same sentiments and principals.                                           Dr. Jonathan Roberts
                                                                                                   Vice President
Our profession and our Academy have endured many challenges and changes
over the years. Despite this, an adherence to those principals outlined by our                   Dr. Amy L. Ludwig
founders has served to keep the Academy relevant as a force for good within                           Treasurer
our profession and our community.
                                                                                                Dr. John J. Young, Jr.
In the past several months our nation has witnessed changes of historic
magnitude and it remains to be seen what future affect they will have on our
profession. While no institution can sustain viability if it is fixated on the past,
history has shown that with our eyes on the future and the vision of our                         Dr. Guy N. Minoli
founders fixed in our minds, we shall continue to uphold those ideals which                            Editor
advance the “dignity and honor of the Dental Profession” and allow us to
continue to be a force for good within our community and our world.
                                                                                       continued on page 5

  The mission of the New York Academy of Dentistry is “To uphold the dignity and honor of the dental profession; exalt
  its professional and ethical standards; extend its sphere of usefulness and promote the advancement of dental science;
  encourage publication in professionally controlled refereed journals; elevate the standards of dental education; promote and
  support dental research; encourage membership activity in community service; promote camaraderie within the fellowship;
  and exert its influence toward placing the activities of the profession and its members upon the highest ethical plane”.

                                 MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR
When a candidate is given consideration for Fellowship in the New York Academy of Dentistry, certain
criteria must be evaluated. Education, knowledge, skill, talent, ability to get along with others, and leadership
capabilities are all qualities that build a strong curriculum vitae. However, the final judgment of an individual
candidate must be based on character.

In recent years, we have witnessed a myriad of skilled and talented individuals at the pinnacle of their respective
fields, falling short of character and freefalling to self-destruction of all that is important in life. We are in an era
when pleasure is considered over integrity, when responsibility for one’s actions is denied and when excuses
(ie: “everyone else is doing it so that makes it okay” or “I am not perfect, I am only human”) qualify unethical
rationale. We have seen a dramatic decline in personal accountability, ethics, and civility. Increasingly, we are
ethically challenged to evaluate individuals for more than their popularity, skill and talent… and for more than
their celebrity or office.

I think that proponents of character would applaud the New York Academy of Dentistry for being a stable,
unyielding force and a courageous example when it comes to protecting the integrity and character of our
profession. Many agree that by adhering to the principles of the Academy’s Mission Statement, we stay constant
and steadfast. Consider the familiar quotation “Our thoughts become words, our words become actions, our
actions become habits, and our habits determine our character.” The national organization, Character Counts,
describes character with six core ethical values: citizenship, trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, caring,
and fairness.

Let us examine our actions, habits, and character over the last year highlighting these six core ethical values:

   The Academy demonstrates CITIZENSHIP by reinforcing the privileges of Fellowship.- At the start of
   our academic year, President Anthony Curinga challenged the Academy to “act as mentors to the dental
   profession in general” and asked “each and every fellow to do what they are able to do to promote the
   idealism that created the founding of this great Academy of Dentistry”. Based on the strength of his own
   magnanimous personality, he encouraged “the camaraderie of the fellows….to be an integral part of
   accomplishing these goals”.

   The Academy exemplifies TRUSTWORTHINESS with reliable and faithful actions. Treasurer Amy Ludwig
   more than met the challenges of these financial times by securing the Academy’s assets. She did this by
   researching rates of interest, confirming the soundness of our banks, and by maximizing the FDIC security of
   our accounts. Treasurer Ludwig figuratively hand quilted a security blanket to help us all sleep better at night.

   RESPECT is at the core of the Academy as we honor eminent Fellows.- Secretary Jonathan Roberts, who
   consistently elevates the status of our Academy, granted certificates to our new Life Fellows: The very
   distinguished Drs. Joel Goldin, Richard Lichtenthal, Joseph Pianpiano, Joseph Spector, Ronald Topal and Ira
   Zinner. Secretary Roberts also awarded certificates to our new Active Fellows: Drs. Gregory Browne, Larry
   Dober, Lawrence Dobrin, James Fine, Joel Friedman, Howard Glazer, Michael Goodman, Charles Kaner,
   Steven Mondre, Maitreya Padukone, Frank Pappas, and Albert Thompson. New Associate Fellows were also
   formally introduced and recognized: Drs. Neal Auerbach, Sara Babich, Edward Goldin, Edward Gottesman,
   Michael Leifert, Michaek Mistretta, David Shipper and Michael Soloway. Congratulations to all the
   respected honoraries!

   The Academy exhibits RESPONSIBILITY by being accountable for the status of its members. - The
   Fellowship Committee, driven by Thomas Connally (who must have previous experience as a Recruitment
   Officer) reported that the Academy is strong with 408 members: 237 Active Fellows, 63 Associate Fellows, 7
   Active Life Fellows, 5 Retired Fellows, 59 Life Fellows, 28 Retired Fellows, and 9 Non-Resident Fellows.
   (I checked the math- correct as usual) Please give Tom a salute the next time you see him! Dr. Greg

                                                                                                    continued on page 3

   Monterosso of our Dinner Committee hosted 153 members in October, 153 members in November, 106 members in
   January, 157 members in February , 139 members in March and 160 members in April.

   The main concern of the Academy is CARING for the future of ethical dentistry. - Robert Miner , who tirelessly
   orchestrates the Education Committee at Columbia and NYU, proved that in addition to Ethics and Education, he also
   knows how to “facilitate” a party. A reception was held at the home of Dr. Colleen Cournot for all Facilitators who have
   participated over the last five years. All the more reason to facilitate! Our previous Editor, the forever young and eloquent
   John Young, hasn’t stopped smiling since last January. (All previous Editors understand why.)

The evidence of FAIRNESS is present in the recognition of outstanding accomplishments. - Ethics Awards sponsored by the
Academy were presented to the graduating seniors at the local dental schools. This years winners were from Columbia,
New York University, Stony Brook and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.

The Research Awards Committee announced the $4000
Grant Winners for 2009. Congratulations to Nana Odoom                 Thank you to Fellows and some of their colleagues who
