Previous Conference Recap

47th Annual Conference Theme

Serve to Love – Love to Serve

My fellow members (and potential members) of the Ensign Academy of Dentistry,

It’s amazing to think this organization has been going for 47 years now! I am so pleased to be able to serve as your president this year. There have been changes in the past few years- a new venue, and a new name. Both of these changes will help move our organization forward.

For those of you who have a hard time with these changes, Socrates wisely stated, “ The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”

The Ensign Academy of Dentistry has so much to offer to all the dental team. We have an amazing conference that has no rivals! It provides scholarship, mentorship and fellowship. 

My theme for the year is: “Serve to Love- Love to Serve”.  It is easy to serve those we love. As we do so, we love them even more. Conversely, as we serve others we may not know, we begin to love them. Everyone becomes our friend and “neighbor” no matter where in the world they live.

What a privilege we have as dental professionals to share our skills and knowledge with those less fortunate in temporal ways than us. Our service to them provides us with countless blessings, so it is a win-win situation. As wise King Benjamin said, “When ye are in the service of your fellow beings, ye are only in the service of your God.” 

Let us all continue to serve, and share the opportunity of the Ensign Academy of Dentistry with those we know who would like to serve alongside us.It’s going to be a great year!
