A Message from Society President Roy McDonald


Another Big Hit


In 1967, Sonny & Cher’s “The Beat Goes On” was a Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 hit song. It peaked at number six. In 2019, Dr. Jonathan Dubin and his team, Dr. Dave Lee and Dr. Sedgie Newsom, are preparing to make Hinman’s “The Beat Goes On” a number one hit.

To help with that goal, everyone must fulfill their committee duties during the March meeting. If you have not volunteered for a position, please call the Hinman office (404-231-1663).  Serving during the March meeting will entitle you to an invitation to the General Chair and  President’s Reception on Thursday, March 21, 2019 and one night’s stay during our annual  meeting at Pinehurst, June 7-9, 2019.

Speaking of other hits, Dr. Jay Smith delivered an exceptional lecture to over 250 members at our September membership meeting. His knowledge and delivery kept the audience engaged with all aspects of Smileline Esthetics. Nice job, Jay! Mark your calendars now for our Monday, November 12 membership meeting. Dr. Stuart Zola will present information on “Brushing, Flossing, Inflammation, Memory and Cognitive Decline: How Are They Connected?” at The Westin Atlanta Perimeter North. Sign up now to learn about memory loss and how to protect the aging brain, don’t forget!


Monday, November 12 is when we observe Veteran’s Day. I ask that all Hinman Members who are Veterans attend the Membership Meeting so you can be recognized. 
Thursday, January 17, 2019 at The Georgia Aquarium, Tieraona Low Dog will present to members and staff her lecture “Life Is Your Best Medicine.” Be there and bring some life to the party. While attending the membership meetings, please try to meet and greet our newest members. Introduce yourself and make them feel as welcome as you were. Kudos to Dr. Eric Anderson and the Hospitality Committee for their superb work at the membership meetings. 


Be sure to thank the Trustees and Trustee Chair Dr. Wayne Tadsen for their continued generosity of Society subsidies. Their financial benevolence allows members to attend each membership meeting at a reduced cost.


The University of Tennessee School of Dentistry will host The Hinman Dental Symposium during the first week of November. There will be student clinicians from many dental schools in the country. I will present the Hinman story featuring Dr. Thomas P. Hinman, the Hinman Dental Meeting, and our mission in providing scholarships from the revenues of our high quality dental continuing education delivered at the March meeting.

I continue to be blown-away by all the positive feedback our Hinman scouts receive while they are visiting other dental meetings. This is, in large part, due to you. Our members make our meeting stand out. Thanks for all you do, and keep up the good work!


The coordination and logistics of providing three membership meetings, the March meeting and our annual summer meeting would be impossible without the  extraordinary Hinman staff. Be sure to thank them. In addition, we are pleased to announce our newest Hinman staff member, our Meeting Coordinator, Ashley Allen.


I hope everyone has Happy Holidays, a Happy Thanksgiving, a Happy Hanukkah, a Merry Christmas!


Until next time,
