A Message from Society President David Anderson


The New Season of Hinman!


As summer in Atlanta begins to fade into autumn, we have students heading back to campus, the Bulldogs commence the title defense of their national championship and the new season of Hinman events are ready to begin. Before we look forward to the upcoming year, let’s look back to the previous year. A big thanks to William Rousseau for his leadership and for taking the Society to Point Clear, AL and the Grand Hotel. These Annual Meetings are a great benefit to our membership. All you have to do is to fulfill your duties to receive a complimentary hotel night courtesy of the Trustees. 

Also, a huge congratulations to Kate Robinson, General Chair 2022, and her Program Chairs, Jim Roos and Randy Phillips. It was truly wonderful to
see over 12,000 attendees packing the classrooms and Exhibit Hall once again. Thanks to all of the membership for volunteering your eight hours and
beyond. The Hinman Dental Meeting simply could not occur without your willingness to serve. Our speakers and our attendees, year after year, proclaim
the March Meeting as being the best dental CE meeting. It’s because of the dedication to detail, the enthusiastic Southern hospitality of our members and
the stellar execution of our Hinman staff.


As we turn our calendar to September, you’ll see that we have a great year coming up. Kristina Dawson, Society Program Chair, and I are thrilled
with the line-up for our three Membership Meetings. Monday, September 19, at the Westin Atlanta Perimeter North, Hinman Distinguished Service
Award Recipient, Dr. Gordon Christensen, shares his wealth of knowledge with his lecture, “Fifty Useful Clinical Tips in Three Hours.” Monday, November 14,
Dr. Lee Ann Brady, will share her Pankey influenced clinical excellence. This lecture will be held at the JW Marriott Buckhead. Thursday, January 19, will
find us back at the Georgia Aquarium. Does anybody else feel guilty eating fish at the Aquarium? Dr. Tieraona Low Dog will show us how we can live
better, live longer, live simpler and how to access a healthier, more connected way of living. She is the number one requested lecturer from my team,
so remember to bring your staff to this meeting. All of our lectures begin at 4 p.m., followed by a brief business meeting, cocktails and dinner.
The subsidized registration fee is another great benefit of being a member. Thanks to Hospitality Chair, Angela Ojibway, and all that serve on this

committee in facilitating the Membership Meetings. Remember, to fulfill your membership requirements, everyone needs to attend at least one of these
Membership Meetings.

March is a scant seven months away and soon you will be able to “Expand Your Horizons, Explore Your Future.” General Chair, Roy McDonald and his
Program Chairs, Brad Greenway and Troy Schulman, are finalizing the last details on what I know will be the next Best Hinman Ever! Please remember to
volunteer your eight hours of service this March.

The final event of our 2022-2023 Hinman season will be our Annual Meeting, and this year we’re going to Disney World! We will be staying at Disney’s Grand
Floridian Resort and Spa, June 2-4, 2023. Come earlier or stay longer at the Hinman rate, based on availability. Thanks to Jackie Sarvis and her diligent,
meticulous planning and to the Annual Meeting chairs, Ken Berger and Eric Anderson, for what will be a magical experience. This promises to be a great
trip for the entire family, so get it on your calendars.


Thanks to the Hinman staff, led by our Interim Executive Director, Lynn Leidel. Jackie, Wendy, Stephanie, Caitlyn and Britney are the best in the
business and run our Society at such a high level. Again, thank you for all that you do! 


Walt Disney had a relentless pursuit of perfection. He called it ‘plussing’ – doing whatever you can to make something good,

great and to make something great, even greater. That has been the driving motivation of the Hinman Dental Society ever since our founding father, Thomas

P. Hinman, started the Atlanta Midwinter Clinic in 1911. The journey of our Society continues, and I am filled with hope, very confident for what the future holds

and excited to see it unfold.


Being a member of the Hinman Dental Society is truly the highlight of my dental career and to be able to represent the Society as this year’s President
is an amazing honor. I look forward to working with everyone this upcoming year.
