Seattle was the location for the most recent scientific session of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Is all we hear of Seattle’s weather is clouds and rain but sunshine and blue skies were the norm the week I was there. It was great seeing old friends and colleagues and after I lectured the first day, I enjoyed being a student for the week. I was honored to be appointed by the American Board of Cosmetic Dentistry as the next chairman of Fellowship. Fellowship is the academy’s highest credential. I look forward to the responsibility and challenge of this prestigious position.
