New Pennsylvania Dental Association President Will Focus on Improving Access to Care
Date:4/17/2008

udent Loans. Pennsylvania's student loan forgiveness program currently reimburses dentists serving in underserved areas as much as $64,000 over four years. However, the debt load for dental students is estimated to be $162,000 and higher. PDA believes more funding in the student loan forgiveness program will attract more dentists to rural and urban areas that are underserved.

Expanding Dental Services. The PDA is seeking an expansion of duties for certified dental assistants and expanded function dental assistants. This shift would allow dentists to treat more patients, increasing access to dental services throughout the Commonwealth. Kansas, which passed a similar law in 1998, found that more patients were able to receive dental care.

"Oral health is a key component to ensuring healthy people, both children and adults," said Dr. Gamba. "As President of the Pennsylvania Dental Association, I look forward to working with lawmakers and health organizations to improve access to quality dental care in our communities."

A graduate of Villanova University and Temple University's School of Dentistry, Dr. Gamba joined his father's practice in Philadelphia where they worked together until his father retired in 1985 after 51 years of practice. In 1981, Dr. Gamba was awarded a Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry, signifying over 500 hours of post-graduate, continuing education in various phases of dentistry. He has been a clinical instructor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine and has lectured in practice management at Temple University's School of Dentistry. He is also the consulting dentist for the Philadelphia Phillies.

Dr. Gamba serves on the American Dental Association Council on Ethics, Bylaws and Judicial Affairs. Some of the offices he has held include President of the Philadelphia County Dental Society, Chairman of the Board of the Liberty Dental Conference, Council on Annual Sessions of the American Denta
