MAY 2024

Presidents Message

Spring has sprung and summer is just around the corner.  The annual conference was a great success, and the entire committee would like to thank you for your participation and support.  Planning will soon begin for our 2025 conference, which is slated for April 25-26, 2025, in southern California.  Mark your calendars now!

Thank you to those who filled out volunteer applications.  Watch for a follow up email. Still want to volunteer?  Click here for an application. 

 We look forward to growing our board of directors, committee members and future officers.   This is an exciting time as we begin a new year with new projects, offerings, and benefits for our members.   

The month of May is already quite busy.  The Dental Assisting Council and Dental Board meeting will be held May 14-15, 2024 at the Anaheim Hilton.  This meeting will be very important.   The DAC and DBC will be addressing the educational regulatory package and SB 1453, the Sunset Review bill.  If you can attend, please do so as we need your support.  Your attendance at these meetings is important and noticeable to the DAC and DBC.   Please click here for the agendas and meeting materials. 

Thank you for your continued support as CADAT moves forward.    Your membership and participation is greatly appreciated and I am humbled by the opportunity to continue to serve.

Shari Becker, CDA, RDA, FADAA, AS
