The Association of Dental Support Organizations Announces Election of Members to the Executive Committee

At their November 10th meeting, the Association of Dental Support Organizations (ADSO) Board of Directors elected thirteen members to serve on the 2016-2017 Executive Committee.   The thirteen members elected reflect the Board’s commitment to ADSO’s mission to support its members through research, education and advocacy, enabling them to foster innovation, collaboration, and a vibrant market where DSO-supported dentists can provide quality oral health care.   “We are very fortunate to have members who are strongly dedicated to advancing ADSO’s mission,” said ADSO President Mike Bileca.  Ten of the current Executive Committee members were re-elected while three new members were added:
