President’s Letter

My Fellow Colleagues,

First and foremost, I would like to thank you for the honor to serve as this year’s President of the Sarasota County Dental Association. It is truly a privilege to lead such an accomplished and dedicated group of individuals. As the new academic year begins, I can assure you there has never been a better time than the present to be a member of the SCDA!

With the upcoming 2018-2019 year upon us, the SCDA executive board is excited to provide an excellent program we are sure you will enjoy. Doctors Ken Liszewski, Igor Bilov, Todd Reuter, Jerry Chery, ScottMiddleton, and myself have been working all summer to make sure the SCDA is your “one stop shop” for “all things dental” including education, advocacy, networking and more. Membership opens the door to a wide array of programs, resources and services designed to improve both your personal and professional life.

As you know, continuing education is an element of our licensure requirements that SCDA can help facilitate. All six of our monthly meetings are a great way to stay engaged and apprised of current topics in dentistry while earning two credit hours of quality continuing education. The meetings are great for camaraderie and give members a chance to catch up with peers and friends. All meetings are held at a distinguished local establishment and include a delicious sit down dinner.

We are also pleased this year to host community leaders during each event who will provide opening remarks and share with SCDA the crucial role they play in our community and how each of our members can continue to thrive here in Sarasota County. Please see the enclosed flyer for additional information and as always, feel free to visit our website at

As members of the vast medical community, it’s important we continue to protect our dental profession. Every day local, state, and national lobbying efforts are taking place on our behalf. Membership with the SCDA supports many vital advocacy initiatives that are happening in Tallahassee and have a direct impact on all of our practices here in Sarasota, which is crucial to our success. Participation in organized dentistry allows us to be working while others lobby on behalf of our profession and patients.

If you’re looking to connect with colleagues and build new relationships, membership with SCDA offers the chance to share meals, opinions, advice, support, politics, continuing education and more, all right here in Sarasota County. We hope you will join us Thursday, September 13 beginning at 6pm at Michael’s on East for the new mandatory opioid course led by Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight. I look very forward to seeing you and wish you a successful rest of the year!

Yours truly,

Lance A. Karp, DMD, FAGD
