ASTDD Associate Member Quotes

Samuel Zwetchkenbaum, Dental Director, Rhode Island

"My career in oral health has taken me many places throughout the country. During this time, I always made sure to continue my ASTDD associate membership. In fact, it was because of my membership that l learned of the job that brought me back home. Thanks to ASTDD, I am now home in Rhode Island serving as its Dental Director."

Beth Anderson, Oral Health Epidemiologist, Michigan Department of Health & Human Services

"When I joined the ASTDD I had no idea that it would lead to helping set our nation's public health priorities. But it did. When working with the CDC as a member of the ASTDD Data Committee, I was asked to give feedback and comment on the Healthy People 2030 oral health objectives. I am grateful for the opportunity."th Consultant, National Association of Chronic Disease Directors

Barbara Park, Public Health Consultant, National Association of Chronic Disease Directors

"As the ASTDD Liaison to the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors, ASTDD has given me the opportunity to combine my two lifelong career passions. The experience has been incredible. Thank you ASTDD!"

John Welby, Director, Oral Health Literacy, Maryland Office of Oral Health

"I knew very little about oral health when I joined ASTDD. I quickly got involved in committees, presented at conferences, and made friends all over the country. Who could have imagined that in only six years I would be on the ASTDD Board of Directors. I'm amazed every time I think of it."
