March 2019 Newsletter


A Note from your RCDS President and Executive Committee...


We hope this note finds you all well and preparing for spring! We'd like to update you all with a few changes we are making for 2019.


Our first Richmond County Dental Society (RCDS) meeting is set for Tuesday, March 19, 2019. Our presenter for this evening is Mr. Thomas Viola, an engaging speaker and expert in his field of pharmaceuticals. His presentation, titled, "Un-Break My Heart: Cardiovascular Disease, Dental Considerations and Patient Care Planning," is both timely and relevant to our practices today as our patient population ages and new medications are added to the physician’s armamentarium daily.


Our venue has also changed! We will be meeting at Nino's Restaurant at 1110 Hylan Boulevard, Staten Island, NY 10305. Cocktails are at 6 p.m., compliments of CareCredit, followed by our general membership meeting at 7 p.m. Patterson Dental has graciously donated a "gift bag" for all attendees!


As a final note, your executive committee has decided to offer the first 30 members to RSVP to this meeting a free dinner, followed by a half-price dinner for the next 30 members to RSVP. As always, our residents are sponsored by Second District. So, don't wait! RSVP to Dr. Valerie Venterina via text with your name to (917) 689-3911.


We are looking forward to seeing you all on March 19 to kick off a dynamic year for RCDS!


Happy 2019!
