Photo Booth at Annual Session Makes Updating Your Online Profile Easy
If not having a professional photograph of yourself is the main reason you haven’t updated your online profile on ADA.org, consider your problem solved.  This year the SDDA will have a professional photographer on site, during the Annual Session, to take member dentist’s photos at no charge.  The onsite photographer is part of the SDDA’s effort to get more members to update their Find-a-Dentist profile on the ADA web site.  The digitized photo can be used on your web site or for other purposes as well. Beginning this spring, the ADA will be launching a campaign to get more adults into dental offices. Members can update their profile on Find-a-Dentist by logging in to the SDDA or ADA web sites.
House of Delegates
The SDDA House of Delegates will meet on Thursday, May 18th at 6:00 p.m. and Saturday, May 20th at 3:30 p.m. Both meetings will be at the Sioux Falls Convention Center in Ballroom B. The resolutions that have been proposed thus far for consideration by the 2017 SDDA House of Delegates are available on the House of Delegates Notebook area of the SDDA website: http://www.sddental.org/about-us/house-of-delegates.
