Picture1“It is my commitment to you as a member to be your voice and partner.”

Saludos Miembros y Amigos. Greetings Members and Friends.

I am truly honored and blessed to have been elected as National President and I look forward to a term focused on service and advocacy.  During the up coming year it is my commitment to you as a member to be your voice and partner.

The Hispanic Dental Association continues to grow and build on strong foundations and community relationships.  We could not provide the amount of free service nationally and internationally without the continued commitment of you, our member, and the financial support of our partners and sponsors.

As a tax exempt educational and charitable association we represent all members of the oral health team on the issues of Oral Health and efforts focused on the elimination of Oral health disparities in the Hispanic Community.

Additionally, our 40 chapters are at the core of our foundation and they will continue to be how we are represented and stay active in communities across the United States. Being engaged in communities and advocating for the importance of oral health is a team effort and ALL members of the oral health team have a seat and a role with HDA.

I look forward to working with you in 2016

Gracias.
