Presidents Message

Dear LVDS Members,

I hope everyone is doing well and looking forward to the holidays. The Lehigh Valley Dental Society has been changing and evolving to meet the needs of its members. At one time, LVDS focused primarily on providing continuing education programs, with an occasional social event. Now, with the growth of the annual Greater Philadelphia Valley Forge Dental Conference in King of Prussia, the need for local continuing education programs has been significantly reduced. LVDS will still provide programs such as HIPAA, OSHA, Radiology, in addition to other topics relevant to our members. However, the Board has decided that we should be holding more social events. In the past, we have held Iron Pigs and LV Phantom events, as well as a Murder Mystery dinner and a family oriented LV Zoo event. All of which were enjoyed by the members. Another fun social event coming up is our Holiday Mingle #ThankfulFORThursday, which will be held at The Event Center at Blue on November 29th. This is a great opportunity to connect with other members over the holiday season and share best practices.

On another note, LVDS encourages members to provide feedback of any kind on past courses or social functions, as well as suggestions for future social or educational programs. We are always looking to improve and hear what our members want. Comments and suggestions can be sent to our Executive Secretary, Ms. Lauren Sands (lsands75@verizon.net). If you think we are doing well, tell us that too! The Board welcomes your responses and feels it will give us better direction to help us serve the membership’s vision.

We look forward to hearing from you!


Dr. Gary Peters
President, LVDS
