Dr. David Monokian ,
President - Southern Dental Society of NJ
Since 1899, the Southern Dental Society of New Jersey has been an extremely valuable organization and resource for many dentists throughout the New Jersey counties of Burlington, Camden, Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem. The benefits of the Society are to promote overall oral health, stay on top of current dental research and technology through lectures and articles, provide legal assistance to members in need, maintain awareness of legislative issues that could impact our profession, volunteering dental services, and many more.
The executive team is constantly trying to improve the society by having knowledgeable and diverse speakers which attract interest from many different specialists. The interaction with colleagues from many different backgrounds makes this a very unique organization and help to assist individuals in the success of their practice. We generally have five meetings per year and also support the Freedman and DeFonce memorial lectures which are held in November and January respectively.
The Society is always open to new ideas from members to help strengthen our "team" as much as possible. The officers' visitation meeting, usually held in April, is a great way to understand what is happening from a political point of view and how we can help control the future of our profession. We look forward to your participation and are excited to maintain the health and tradition of organized dentistry.
