Roslyn, New York Dentist Elected to Lead American Dental Association
Date:10/3/2007

CHICAGO, Oct. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Mark J. Feldman, D.M.D., who lives in Roslyn, New York, and has practiced the dental specialty of endodontics, was installed as president of the American Dental Association. Dr. Feldman's installation took place during a meeting of the American Dental Association House of Delegates in San Francisco.

As president, he will lead the more than 155,000-member organization's efforts to protect and improve the public's oral health and promote advances in dentistry.

"I look forward to leading the ADA's initiatives to improve access to oral health care for children and the vulnerable elderly who are currently underserved," Dr. Feldman said. "I also want the Association to do everything possible to increase public awareness that oral health is an integral part of over-all health."

Dr. Feldman served for six years as the first treasurer of the ADA to be elected by the House of Delegates, the association's legislative and governing body. During this period, the Association experienced significant changes, including the hiring of a new executive director, a new chief operating officer, and a new chief financial officer. Working as the link between the House of Delegates, the Board of Trustees and the new executive staff, Dr. Feldman was able to streamline the reporting of the Association's financial affairs to the membership. He also successfully oversaw rebuilding of the ADA's depleted reserve accounts and the adoption of a dues stabilization policy that has allowed the organization to experience continued growth while limiting dues increases to no greater than general inflation.

Dr. Feldman proudly acknowledges the team approach that has made these achievements possible. In addition, he points out that due to its financial strength, the Association now has a greater capacity to respond to the challenging issues confronting the profession.

His other previous responsibilities with the ADA include serving as chair of the Council on Insurance and many years representing New York in the House of Delegates. He also served as President of both the New York State Dental Association and the Nassau County Dental Association. He has spent over 30 years serving in leadership positions within the dental profession.

Dr. Feldman received his dental degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and completed his specialty training in endodontics at Nassau County Medical Center. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics as well as a member of all the honorary colleges of dentistry.

Dr. Feldman and his wife Carol, a school teacher, have two sons, Eric and Sean. Eric is an attorney married to Jennifer, and Sean is a teacher married to Colleen.

The not-for-profit ADA is the nation's largest dental association, representing more than 155,000 dentist members. The premier source of oral health information, the ADA has advocated for the public's health and promoted the art and science of dentistry since 1859. The ADA's state-of-the-art research facilities develop and test dental products and materials that have advanced the practice of dentistry and made the patient experience more positive. The ADA Seal of Acceptance long has been a valuable and respected guide to consumer and professional products.
