Dental News: The ADA Appoints a New President

Dental News: The ADA Appoints a New President The American Dental Association appointed Dr. Robert A. Faiella of Massachusetts as the 149th president of the ADA at their Annual Session held in San Francisco.

In the past, Dr. Faiella has served as the ADA’s president-elect and as an ADA Board trustee from the 1st District, which represents Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and Maine.

Dr. Faiella is also the former president of the Massachusetts Dental Society, the past chairman and of ADA Business Enterprises, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the ADA, the former general chair of the Yankee Dental Congress, and former consultant to the MDS Council on Government Affairs.

Failla completed his pre-doctoral education at Villanova University, receiving two Bachelor of Science degrees and a D.M.D. degree from Fairleigh Dickenson University School of Dental Medicine. He completed his graduate training in periodontology as a Post-Doctoral Fellow at Harvard School of Dental Medicine, as well as a Masters of Medical Science degree from Harvard Medical School. He has been an ADA member for 34 years, according to the ADA website.

In past The Wealthy Dentist Surveys, dentists have been asked if the American Dental Association is dominated by specialists who are trying to promote their own agendas and not necessarily the welfare of the general dentist.

As many as two-thirds of the dentist respondents replied that specialists and their associations use the ADA just so they can make more money.

It has been reported that the ADA has over 155,000 member dentists and with 195,628 active dentists in the U.S., about 79% of dentists are still members of the ADA.
