  2. 2. IV. Accomplishments Section Program This year’s section program, titled “Team/Group Leaders, How Do We Attract and Nurture Them?” was presented at the Hilton Anatole Hotel, Dallas, Texas, March 31, 2008 during the 85th Annual ADEA Session. It was organized and moderated by Dr. Susan Lee from UCSF. The speakers for the program were Dr. Lex MacNeil, Associate Dean, Clinical Affairs, UBC; Dr. Fred Certosimo, VCU School of Dentistry and Dr. Joseph Berrong, UTHSCSA Dental School. Dr. MacNeil gave a historical perspective on clinical learning styles, practice teams and leadership in US and Canadian dental schools. Dr. Certosimo spoke about problems encountered a VCU in the late 90’s in their early modular system. He went on to discuss the need for the “generalist” as the lynchpin of a group practice and the issues and difficulties this approach caused among specialty driven clinical teaching. Issues of recruitment and retention were also discussed and the need for team leaders to also be competent managers, communicators and coaches for their teams. Dr. Berrong covered similar topics as they related to UTHSCSA and went on to discuss the need to produce these leaders from within the faculty by nurturing and encouraging those with the identifiable skills. Both Dr’s Certosimo and Berrong stressed the universal problem of adequate compensation for teaching faculty in general and especially for the people we hope to attract to the positions of team managers and group leaders. The program presentations were followed by a lively question and answer session guided by Dr. Lee’s moderation. V. Membership and Attendance A.

IX. Meeting Minutes Minutes of the 2008 Annual Member’s Forum ADEA Section on Comprehensive Care and General Dentistry 85th ADEA Annual Meeting and Exhibition Hotel Anatole, Dallas, Texas Monday, March 31, 2008 1. Call to Order The Member’s Forum was called to order at 12:30 pm by CCGP Section Councilor, Dr. Fred Fendler. Approximately nine members were in attendance. Dr. Fendler announced that Chair Dr. Marnie Oakley was ill and would be unable to attend the Forum; therefore he would also give the Chair’s report. Dr. Fendler thanked Dr. Oakley for her service as Chair and also noted that she was Chair of the Annual Session Planning Committee for the second year. -3-
  4. 4. Dr. Fendler recognized Chair-elect Dr. Susan Lee for developing and moderating the Section’s program, “Team and Group Leaders: How Do We Attract and Nurture Them?” co-sponsored with the Section on Practice Administration. The program was well done and generated spirited discussion. Dr. Fendler congratulated Dr. Norma Partida our Newsletter editor for producing a great newsletter which is available on line at the ADEA website as well as at the Section program. Dr. Fendler has submitted the missing newsletters for inclusion on the ADEA website. Dr. Partida stated that former Councilor Dr. Linc Conn is webmaster of our Section website (http://teeth.uthscsa.edu/compare/index.html) and would like information submitted to him so he can update the website. 2. Officer Reports Councilor and Chair Reports – Dr. Fred Fendler A. House of Delegates The House of Delegates resolutions were covered. Non-are considered controversial. The House of Delegates is working on a proxy voting system that would not require changing the by-laws. As it is now both Councilor and Chair must attend the opening and closing of the House of Delegates to vote. It is becoming increasingly expensive and difficult for members to be away from their schools for so long. The major work from the House was passage of the “Competencies for the New General Dentist”. Work will begin this year to establish the Foundation Knowledge needed to support new competencies. This work will be done by the Council of Sections Task Force. It is expected to be a 2 to 3 year project. B. Council of Sections The Section on Dental Hygiene Education was awarded the Thomas F. Nowlin Award for Best Performance by a Section . It was noted that all section officers can vote at the Council of Sections. COS Vice President, Sandra Andrieu reported that a motion to have only a single name for the slate for the post of President-Elect of ADEA was brought forward at the Board of Directors meeting. The COS and several other Councils voted this motion down. ADEA Board of Directors has formed a committee to write an ADEA Code of Professionalism. $25,000.00 was funded to this new project. The COS has membership on the committee. Project Pool: $54,000 had been reduced to $25,000 because several projects have been funded. Some projects were completed and new applications accepted. A project on smoking cessation has just been completed. Two more projects have been funded. One is headed by the Gay-Straight Alliance and the other by Anatomical Sciences. Two new applications were submitted in February. To apply you need at least two sections to submit. Dr. Fendler encouraged anyone that may have an idea for project pool funding to talk about it among the members. There are presently 37 sections. As sections combine or as SIGs become sections it changes the voting power in the House of Delegates. The Council of Sections would like to put forth a candidate for President of ADEA. -4-
  5. 5. C. Section Dr. Fendler handed out the Section Financial Report for 6/30/2007 – 12/31/2007 with a balance of $5,481.39 with no addition income or expenses. There was a question from the floor that if the money was not used after two years would it be turned over to the project pool. Open enrollment: CCGD has one of the largest section enrollment of 1780 members. Initial breakdown of that group is a follows: Faculty: 382 Students: 1200 Administration: 74 Remainder: undeclared Dr. Alan Budenz commented that it seemed logical that students who wanted to be general dentists and not teach might choose the CCGP as their section. 3. Old business Dr. Susan Lee asked about the Project Pool project that the CCGP was involved in around 2000-2001. Was it about school models and would that be worth repeating? Dr. Alan Budenz said that is was a survey among faculty that practiced general dentistry. It did ask some questions about the school model but was mainly concerned with faculty activity, research interests and interest in collaborative research opportunities. In his opinion school programs were in so much flux that the information received was out of date before it could be organized and reported. Dr. Fred Certosimo suggested that when the project was done that the technology was such that it took too long to enter the data and present it. That a better way of knowing who was in the Section and their interests would be for the ADEA to keep updated profiles on members. Dr. Fendler reported that the Council of Sections was working on identifying exactly who members were and how to proceed from there. 4. New Business Ideas were brought forth concerning next year’s Section Program. Some topics of interest discussed were: Follow up on the 2003 survey of schools that Dr. David Holmes, et al completed about different types of clinical models and why they change. Clinical group structures, especially how many students are involved. A follow-up to the San Antonio and Orlando meetings in which three different clinical models were described. Why top students are attracted to specialties and not to general dentistry. Integrating Hygiene departments into general dentistry practice models. Vertical integration of D1 and D2 students into the clinic. Competencies vs. requirements. Dr. Budenz suggested that since Chair-elect Dr. Kim Skaggs was responsible for the next program he make the selection and he should let the members know if he needs help. Dr. Fendler stated that the deadline for program submission was July 11, 2008 and the decision needed to be made soon. 5. Election of Officers Nominations for the Newsletter Editor were opened. Dr. Joe Parkinson from the University of Missouri – Kansas City was nominated from the floor. Nominations were -5-
  6. 6. closed. Dr. Parkinson was elected unanimously. All other officers will advance one position. 6. Announcements Dr. Olav Alvares, Editor of The Journal of Dental Education is retiring and there is an active search underway for his replacement. The Interim meeting is in Philadelphia, PA. in October. Councilors attend. The 2009 Annual meeting is in Phoenix, March 14 – 18, 2009. The Chair Dr. Susan Lee announced she is retiring from the UCSF dental school July 1. She will continue to be active in the ADEA and will Chair the meeting in Phoenix. She also offered to be of help as she hopes to have more time. 7. Adjournment Submitted Respectfully, Kim Skaggs, DDS Secretary, ADEA Section on Comprehensive Care and General Dentistry X. Section Program Evaluation Summary Electronic submission of evaluations indicated that the program was well received. However there were only 10 responses from the 41 people who attended. It may be that some were not aware of this new format. XI. Feedback to the Administrative Board We would like to thank you for your continued efforts to minimize program conflicts between groups of similar or overlapping interests. The program this year was well organized and well run by ADEA staff and a special thanks to Monique Morgan for all of her help. XII. Attach all other relevant documents. 2007/2008 CCGD Newsletter sent under separate cover. -6-
