It’s been mild in Tennessee except for the recent storms. Hopefully there has been no damage to your homes or offices. I was glad I got to meet with several of you in Atlanta at the SSPD Annual session. Once again it was a good, educational and fun meeting. The Board of Trustees of AAPD had a very productive mid-winter planning meet- ing in January. The board has committed to sponsoring a new program with other dental associations and the Ad Council. They are working on a new positive chil- dren’s advertisement “Brush Your Teeth”. This will be monumental in educating our patients and their families. Please watch our AAPD website for continuing education. The joint AAPD and AAO meeting in January at Marco Island, Florida was even better than anticipated with over 1200 in attendance. There is a practice management course in Tampa, Florida in March. Then AAPD is putting on a course at the ADA this fall in San Francisco, “Transitioning the Special Needs Patient to General Dentists”. We will try to train the gen- eral practitioners to feel comfortable with our special needs patients whose dental requirements have out grown our offices. The Board and some State Representatives again went to Washington to visit Congress. We discussed the dental needs of our patients. There were some good visits with our individual elected officials. Don’t forget to give gener- ously to our PAC. Many states are changing sedation requirements for dentists. Please know your state laws. There are courses offered to help meet your needs. There is an active task force to investigate the structure of the AAPD and strengthening our organization. I will keep you abreast of it. There are 2 Southeast representatives – Mark Meyer and Scott Cashon. Any thoughts please contact them. Don’t forget that San Diego is the place to be May 24-27. Our annual session is going to be great. It’s a beautiful location with current continuing education courses. There is a forensic course all day Thursday with interesting case overviews. Also on Friday our opening keynote speaker is Marcus Luttrell who wrote the book “Love Survivor”. Please make your plans now. Our President Rhea Haugseth is from Georgia and we want to support her. Please contact me if I can be of any help to you. Respectfully Submitted, 6 Jeannie Beauchamp, D.D.S.

Farrington Guest Editor I can’t tell you how surprised, honored and humbled I was at the January SSPD meeting with the announcement of the FRANK FARRINGTON SERVICE AND LEADERSHIP AWARD to recognize residents and recent graduates for professional and community service. When I moved to Charleston to join the faculty of the dental school one of the first things John Corcoran advised me to do was join SSPD. After over 40 years that is still one of the best pieces of advice I have ever been given regarding my professional and personal life. We have been given the privilege to practice a great profession, with this privilege also goes a responsibility to give back to our profession and our community. The importance 9 of getting involved needs to start in our graduate programs. The future leaders of our profession and the SSPD are those in training today. THANK YOU ! To draw a phrase from my dear friend Howard. THAT IS ONE MAN’S OPINION AND IS THE LAST WORD.
