  2. 2. T Milton E. Essig, DMD President, ALAGD 2010-2011 “An Optimal Return on Investment” Greetings and Salutations are conveyed with this invitation to the Alabama Academy of General Dentistry’s Annual “Review of Dentistry” at the Sandestin Beach Hilton Golf Resort and Spa in Destin, Florida, September 7 - 10, 2010. On behalf of the Officers and Board of Directors, I am grateful for the collaborative effort in designing a comprehensive, multifaceted educational program in the areas of economics, practice management, team interaction, clinical perspectives in multiple areas of dentistry and medicine, along with a special hands-on clinical component for assistants and hygienists, as well as the opportunity to fulfill CPR and Infection Control licensure requirements. In reviewing the brochure, you will note a stellar list of scholars and clinicians who are recognized as the most knowledgeable authorities in their field with regional, national, and international repu- tations for their expertise in evidence-based clinical education and research. Their subject matter has been designed to provide you the most current and up-to-date information in the respective specialty. Similarly our corporate sponsors and exhibitors are considered a vital component to this meeting as they display an array of the most cutting edge materials, products and services. In this regard, our exhibit hall will be open on Thursday and continue on Friday. For 2010, you will note a modi- fication that will provide expanded hours on Thursday, with hors d’oeuvres, refreshments, bever- ages, and gift drawings that will allow for enhanced interactions with exhibitors and a festive atmo- sphere for the dental family. In economics, the R.O.I. - Return on Investment - is an essential measurement for business suc- cess. Accordingly, the combination of this academic program along with the family oriented ameni- ties of a world class resort, amidst the turquoise, azure blue waters of the gulf and the shimmering crystalline sands of the Emerald Coast, represent the optimal return on your investment for the dental family. We are confident this experience will be rewarding, and cordially invite you and your family to join us in September. The Beautiful Hilton Sandestin Hotel
