Following the introduction of osseointegration to North America in 1982, a group of dental clinicians from the Greater New York area participated in a course entitled “Osseointegration in Clinical Dentistry”. Subsequently, the group formed a study club to share research and information. This local study club eventually concluded that a national organization was essential to foster education and advancement in this field. As a result, the Academy of Osseointegration was formed.

The American Society of Dentist Anesthesiologists (ASDA) comprises dentists who have completed a minimum two years of full-time postdoctoral training in dental anesthesiology.
Our clinical training includes a significant portion devoted to hospital operating room anesthesiology rotations as well as ambulatory anesthesia for dental patients.
These and other clinical experiences, such as emergency medicine, cardiology, and acute and chronic pain management, are complemented by didactic lectures and seminars to develop highly competent practitioners who can carefully evaluate a dental patient to determine and deliver the appropriate sedation or general anesthetic that is needed, and safely manage complications that may arise.
The Midwest Society of Periodontology was conceived in 1958 by Dr.’s Genevieve Roth, Irving Charles Stone, Jack Penticuff, Henry Swenson and Erwin Schaffer.

The first meeting was in February 1958 with a business meeting, scientific session and a cocktail hour. The society has continued to grow to a premier regional periodontal society.
