Dr. Thomas Sullivan, former ADA Vice President and practicing dentist, presented on career options in dentistry and gave ethical scenarios for the students to ponder, in addition to discussing the value of being a member of organized dentistry.
“If I could do dentistry for free, I would do it. That's the passion,” Dr. Sullivan told the 60 students in attendance as he pointed to his heart. “If you have it, make it grow. If you don't, get it.”
The students also toured the ADA building and heard about the Association's science lab and other areas that keep the ADA running and serving members.
Programs are free to the students and the school. For more information, or to schedule a program, contact ADA Office of Student Affairs at 312.440.7470 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
