Hitting member growth and retention goals, as well as receiving recognition for exemplary event management, are just two areas of achievement noted for the 150-year-old D.C. Dental Society by its president, Dr. Julian Moiseiwitsch.
Writing in the society’s June 2016 newsletter, Moiseiwitsch said the DCDS provided $472,000 in donated care during a Mission of Mercy Project during the American Dental Association’s annual meeting, earning the society accolades for handling the event’s 600 volunteers.
Here’s an overview of some of the society’s other achievements:
— Market Share: With nearly 3 percent growth, due largely to the addition of more new dentists and women dentists, the chapter earned four recruitment and retention awards at the ADA’s 2016 recruitment conference in Chicago.
— Howard University: As part of its effort to engage Howard University dental students, the society held its second annual ADA National Signing Day on campus, adding 25 potential new members.
— Social Activities: Efforts to engage and attract new members included an annual charity golf outing, happy hour networking events and continuing-education workshops.
Other notable events included the $1.6 million sale of the society’s former headquarters building, with proceeds going to a reserve fund and a clean financial audit for 2015.
