Spotlight on Dr. Berd in San Francisco Dental Society's The Bridge Magazine

Dr. Berd's recent trip to Chicago for the American Dental Association's New Dentist Leadership Conference is highlighted in the August Issue of The Bridge, a monthly publication from the San Francisco Dental Society.
Here is an excerpt: 
"This year’s conference was an amazing learning experience. It included a break- out session with the ADA Board of Trustees to discuss hot topics such as “How will we, as a dental profession and as a nation, overcome issues with access to dental care?” and “Will there be a mid-level dental provider, and what kind of impact will that have on dental care?” 

"The ADA also provided a great assortment of CE courses, including “Preparing for Practice Ownership” and “Going Green—It’s not just for the Environment”. Plus, there was a full day of leadership development that included a Networking Lunch Break allowing new dentists the opportunity to meet their colleagues and share ideas. As an SFDS member who also sits on two committees-Membership and Community Dental Health-I feel that I can take the valuable lessons learned at the New Dentist Conference and apply them to my activities in the local dental society."
