Dr. Charles Mistretta

Dear Colleagues:


Greetings to you all. As we approach summer, I sincerely hope that you and your families are all well.


Our RCDS meeting on May 15 featured Dr. Dale Rosenbach as our guest speaker, who presented his 150th lecture in periodontics and implantology on the topic, "Critical Considerations for Posterior Immediate Implants." The lecture described immediate implant placement in new extraction sites and in both infected and non-infected areas, as well as the success rates and possible sequelae following these surgical procedures.


You are all invited to come and enjoy a relaxing dinner with your friends and colleagues and absorb some knowledge at our future general membership meetings. Remember, you earn 2 CE credits while attending.


RCDS Board of Trustees member, Dr. Joseph Merola, is participating in a mission trip with Healing the Children to the Cape Verde Islands, off the northwest coast of Africa, in October 2018. A motion was passed for RCDS to donate $500 in support of the project. Dr. David Hoffman also reported that his annual event for his Healing the Children organization at The Copacabana raised $25,000 and thanked all for their participation in the event.


Our annual golf outing will be held at the New Jersey National Golf Club in Basking Ridge on Thursday, June 28, 2018. Dr. Bryan Pieroni is chair of the event and can be reached at (718) 442-5319. The cost is $100 for RCDS members and $225 for non-members. This includes lunch and the awards dinner. A dinner-only option is available and is free this year to RCDS members. Golf is limited to the first 48 registrants, so kindly respond by June 14.


Our Night at the Races was such a success last year that we have decided to repeat the event this year. More information will follow as it becomes available.


Due to school openings and religious holidays conflicting with our usual September meeting date, there will be no September meeting this year. The next general membership meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 16, 2018. It will feature Steven S. Schwartz, D.D.S., who will lecture on the topic, "Clinical Encounters in Pediatric Dentistry." I hope to see you there; have a healthy and most enjoyable summer!


Respectfully yours, 

Charles J. Mistretta, DDS

Richmond County Dental Society 2018 Vice President
