2022 Conference Recap

Celebrating 46 Years

Dr. Ferrell

No Greater Reward

Welcome to the 46th Ensign Academy of Dentistry (formerly the Academy of LDS Dentists) annual conference!  We are confident you will enjoy the Education, Fellowship and Service opportunities of this conference.

It has been said that no greater reward can come to any of us as we serve than a sincere “thank you for being my friend.”

The Savior said “ye are my friends if ye do whatsoever I command you.” John 15:14. One of those commands for us is to love one another as he has loved us. We all have such a great opportunity to show our love to others and serve those who are less fortunate.  I know we can and are doing that in our individual practices.  My hope this year is that we will develop new friendships with many others as we choose to serve those in need. Please consider helping those right here at home or choosing from the list of humanitarian friends of the Academy and plan a trip. You won’t regret it. It will bless your life and change you forever. I know this to be true. You will talk about your experiences for a lifetime and you will develop lasting friendships. 

No greater reward can come to any of us as we serve than a sincere “thank you for being my friend.”
