The Association of Army Dentistry was founded to advance Army dentistry with activities to promote morale, support recruitment and retention, provide education, foster a historical perspective and appreciation of Army dental history, and provide a means of recognition for those who serve and have served the nation via Army dentistry.
Dear friends of Army Dentistry,
Much has happened since the Association of Army Dentistry was founded and celebrated our 100th anniversary of the Corps. Each year we add new features to our website, offer support to active dental units as they recognize outstanding service members, organize events and support for the annual Dental Birthday Ball in San Antonio every 5th year following our 100th celebration. If you missed being a part of the 800 participants during 2011, then mark your calendars for a major party in March 2016.
Your membership within the association not only signifies support for our military, active and retired, but ensures your name will be included in guest lists for many special events such as promotions, changes of command and dental balls in your area. There have been some revisions to the membership form asking you to specify the military post nearest you and to enlist your assistance with various programs within the association. We look for all your creative ideas to help us grow.
Because the dental birthday events fall in early March, we encourage you to join or renew your membership as soon as possible to facilitate updating the various guest lists. If you feel someone should be contacted for membership, please include his or her name, address and/or email. Anyone involved in army dentistry past or present is eligible. We welcome our officers, enlisted, civilian, medical service corps and corporate friends. Surviving spouses are warmly welcomed as well.
It has been a terrific experience building the Association of Army Dentistry as it enables all of us to contact former neighbors and co-workers. The bonds of friendship and camaraderie formed through military service are the most unique and special of relationships. We look forward to continuing those relationships and adding more memories.
We hope to see you soon at one of the dental events or on the website!
