Date:9/17/2007

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Henry Fields, DDS, MS, MSD, a former dean and the current head of the Orthodontics Department at The Ohio State University College of Dentistry, was recently installed as president of the Ohio Dental Association on Saturday, Sept. 15, during the ODA's 141st Annual Session.

"It will be an honor serving as president of the ODA," said Fields during his first address as ODA president. "I look forward to working with all of you during the next year."

Fields, a graduate from the University of Washington and University of Iowa, continues to play an active role at The Ohio State University's College of Dentistry. Currently the head of the Orthodontics Department, Fields also served as dean of the college from 1991- 2001 as well as a professor. Fields is also the current Orthodontic Graduate Program Clinic Director.

"When I was dean, I knew that nothing could be accomplished without the ODA and organized dentistry," said Fields. "We were partners and supportive of each other."

Among Fields' objectives as ODA president is to continue to engage the General Assembly on access to care issues. "We must continue to work with the public health community, private sector dentists, dental education institutions, appropriate government agencies and policymakers to explore innovative ways to provide access to dental care to Ohio's vulnerable populations," said Fields during his address.

The new slate of Ohio Dental Association officers is:

Dr. Henry Fields, president (Columbus)

Dr. Steven Simpson, vice president (Hudson)

Dr. H. Sam Fick, immediate past president (Toledo)

Dr. Roger Clark, secretary (Lebanon)

Dr. Thomas Paumier, treasurer (Canton)

Dr. Theodore Pope, speaker of the house (Dayton)
