ACD-ICD C.E. Conference
Joint National Meeting Is First Ever
History was made March 30-31 when the first-ever
ACD-ICD C.E. Conference was held at the beautiful Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa. This
was the first national joint meeting involving the two
organizations. The conference included fellowship,
fun activities, and an optional six hours of continuing education. The Westin Savannah Harbor is in
the heart of the historic Savannah River District and
included a world-class golf course and spa. The resort
overlooked the historic River Street and complimentary water ferry service was available. It was a great
introduction to old southern charm.
The conference began with a reception Thursday
evening. The C.E. program followed the next two
mornings. Dr. Larry J. Cook and Dr. Michael R. Ragan,
Esq. presented an excellent program titled, “Truth or
Consequences: Decision Making and the Influence
of Ethical Concepts.” The course explored the fundamentals of ethical concepts and how they influ-

ence decision making of the dental professional. The
consequences and potential legal ramifications of
poor decision making were also covered. Dr. Carl E.
Findley, Jr. presented a program titled, “The Latest on
New Implant Systems.” His program involved planning implant cases on CT scans, fixed and removable
dentistry over implants, modified sinus procedures
(non-invasive), and other topics.
The conference concluded Saturday evening with a
fun banquet and lots of raffle prizes. Our appreciation is extended to those Sections and individuals
who donated prizes.

President’sForum
In my first President’s Message, I addressed contemporary concerns regarding
the ethics of our profession—the challenges to our ethical foundation. There are
two additional basic tenets which I find
PatriciaL.Blanton
significant to our future as a profession:
etiquette and empathy. This message is devoted to a consideration of etiquette. Dental etiquette might be defined as appropriate
and considerate doctor to doctor interaction, as well as interaction
between doctors and their patients, staff and students. The history
of medical etiquette is traced back at least to Hippocrates1 who
advocated “professional courtesy.”
In 1803 Thomas Percival2 wrote the first “book” on this subject in
which he advocated the “gratuitous attention to fellow professionals
and their families, punctuality in visits of consultation, strict temperance, and the avoidance of the use of quack medicine.” His language
may seem stilted but his thoughts are applicable to today.
We are reminded of several appropriate contemporary examples
of etiquette by Lloyd W. Kitchens,3 physician and past medical
director of Texas Oncology, Baylor Medical Center. These include:
professional courtesy, proper demeanor with patients and staff,
discretion and confidentiality discussing patients, manner of addressing and listening to patients, thoughtful consideration of the
patient’s expressed needs in treatment recommendations, direct
and respectful consultation with other doctors, being available for
after hours calls, and telephone etiquette which includes the doctor’s responsibility to personally make the call to other doctors to
assure consideration of the other’s time.
This message is not intended as an admonition but rather to
sharpen our awareness of the impact of seemingly insignificant
every day behaviors that truly reflect on our profession at large. As
recently as 2007, an observer of medical behavior and practice, Dr.
Atul Gawande,4 commented “It is unsettling how little it takes to
defeat success in medicine. You come as a professional equipped
with expertise and technology. You do not imagine that a mere
matter of etiquette could foil you. But the social dimension turns
out to be as essential as the scientific matter. In this work against
sickness, we begin not with genetic or cellular interactions but with
human ones.”
Dental etiquette is probably best acquired through emulation of

Highlights of the Spring Board Meeting
The Board of Regents of the American College of Dentists met March
28-29, 2012. Some highlights include:
International Dental Ethics and
Law Society (IDEALS)—The
Board of Regents approved a trial
integration agreement with IDEALS
similar to the relationship developed with the American Society for
StephenA.Ralls
Dental Ethics. The latter resulted in
the creation of our 51st Section.
Student Professionalism and Ethics Association
(SPEA)—High-level representatives from SPEA will
present a program in San Francisco on Wednesday,
October 17th as part of the Fellows Forum. The audience
will be informed about SPEA, its future, and opportunities for support by ACD Sections and Fellows.
Ethics Handbooks for Dentists—In 2011 approximately 5,500 Ethics Handbook for Dentists and Ethics Wallet
Cards were distributed in the U.S. and Canada, primarily to dental students.
Candidates Approved—The Board approved 324 candidates for Fellowship. Candidates can delay their induction for three years in the event of prior commitments.
ACD Travel Program—The College is offering a Danube Odyssey cruise through Vantage Travel August 6-19
(see the separate announcement in this issue).
Journal of the American College of Dentists—In order
to allow students more timely access to our journal, each
issue of our journal will be placed online in PDF format
three months after being published. Back issues are
available on our Web site, www.acd.org.
Model Section Program—The Mississippi Section,
New York Section, Northern California Section, Quebec
Section, and Tennessee Section will receive the Model
Section designation in San Francisco during the Fellows
Forum on Wednesday, October 17, 2012.
Online Dues Payment—Fellows can pay dues online
using a link in the Members section of our Web site
(www.acd.org). Usernames and passwords are distributed on your dues notice.
Dues Increase—After consideration of all factors, the
Board approved an increase in annual dues from $175
to $195 beginning with the 2013 dues cycle. Annual dues
were last raised in 2008, so it will have been five years
since a similar action was needed.
Regent Intern Program—The Board is enthusiastic
about the Regent Intern program and it will likely continue in its current form. The Regent Intern, currently
Dr. Michael Meru, brings a new and important perspective to Board discussions.
Social Media—The Board has created a committee
to investigate the ethical issues associated with social
media and make suggestions to our Code of Conduct as
indicated. A White Paper is anticipated and this will be
published in our journal.

student awards given by Sections. Only one award
may be given per dental school per year. An official

Predental Ethics Survey
Prototype Complete
The Predental Ethics Survey prototype has been developed by the American College of Dentists to orient
predental students to the importance of ethics in dentistry. The Predental Ethics Survey is a series of openended questions that relate to ethics in dentistry or
dental education. The survey is intended for applicants
to dental school at the interview stage. It is designed to:
a) improve the awareness of aspiring dental students to
issues of ethics and professionalism in dentistry, and
b) provide supplemental information to dental schools
that may assist the selection process. The responses
are not graded as part of the online process, but dental
schools may evaluate and grade the responses if optionally forwarded to the schools. The survey is in the early
stages of testing and more information will be available
in the near future. Fellows involved with admissions
offices of dental schools are encouraged to contact

ACD-ICD C. E. Conference – Savannah
6
April 2012
Regency Spotlight — Regency 5
I find myself in the final year of
my four-year term as Regent of
Regency 5 of the American College of Dentists, and as I write
this, my final Regency Spotlight.
It has been an incredible experience. I have met so many
wonderful leaders in our profession, and their families. Because
the geographic boundaries of
my ADA Trustee District (DisBertOettmeier
trict 12) are completely different
from ACD Regency 5 (with the exception of Kansas) it
provided the opportunity to become acquainted with an
entirely new group of friends.
Regency 5 is composed of a block of states which make
up seven Sections through the upper Midwest and
Great Plains. Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois,
and Wisconsin are Sections in and of themselves. The
seventh Section is the Upper Midwest Section comprised of North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota.
Twenty-four Nominees from Regency 5 were inducted
into Fellowship of the American College of Dentists in
Las Vegas in October 2011.
One of the most exciting events I have to report was
Kansas becoming its own Section. Kansas Fellows were
previously part of the Kansas City-Midwest Section.
The Kansas City-Midwest Section was a unique section in that it was made up of all of Kansas and a portion of Kansas City, Missouri. As Kansas City-Midwest
Section meetings were held in conjunction with the
UMKC School of Dentistry Alumni Meeting, it created
a dilemma for those Kansas Fellows who did not attend
UMKC School of Dentistry. Additionally the previous
boundaries of the Missouri Section put Missouri’s only
dental school outside the Missouri Section’s geographic
boundaries.
A task force made up of Dr. John Haynes, Dr. Connie
White, Dr. Ken Weinand, Dr. Jack Nelson, Dr. Jim Trotter, and me worked out the logistics of transitioning the
Kansas City, Missouri portion of the Kansas City-Midwest Section into the Missouri Section and renaming the
Kansas City-Midwest Section the Kansas Section. This
change was approved by the ACD Board of Regents at
their Spring Board Meeting in 2011. Included herewith
are the reports of the individual Section of Regency 5.
Illinois Section. The Illinois Section had their annual
joint luncheon with the ICD and Pierre Fauchard Academy in conjunction with the Chicago Mid-Winter Meeting on Saturday February 25, 2012. ACD student awards
were presented at this meeting. Also attending were
ADA President Dr. Bill Calnon, ADA President-elect
Dr. Bob Faiella, and ADA Executive Director Dr. Kathy
O’Loughlin, all of whom were past recipients of ACD
scholarship awards. All three gave brief presentations to
the group on ADA issues.
The Illinois Section works each year with Southern
Illinois School of Dentistry and University of Illinois
at Chicago School of Dentistry, participating in their
respective White Coat Ceremonies. The Illinois Section
will be working with their leadership in hopes of offering an ethics course this year to component societies
and other dental groups.
Future meetings of the Illinois Section include a joint
breakfast with ICD at the ISDS Annual Session, and
their Annual Business and Dinner Meeting is scheduled
for November 2012, where all new inductees will be
welcomed.
Iowa Section. The Iowa Section meeting is in Des
Moines on Saturday May 5, 2012. At that meeting the
following officers will be installed: Chair, Dr. Kathy Kell;
Secretary-Treasurer. Dr. John Kearns; and Immediate
Past-Chair, Dr. Ann D. Harris. On the agenda for new
business is discussion to increase Section dues.
A scholarship for the Outstanding Student Leader
Award will be presented May 5th at the annual meeting. The White Coat Ceremony at the University of Iowa,
which is in part supported by the Iowa Section, will be
held May 9th.

conjunction with the Kansas Dental Association Annual
Meeting. The following officers were elected: Chair,
Dr. Jim Trotter; Secretary-Treasurer, Dr. Chuck Squire;

and Vice Chair, Dr. John Carter. A motion was passed
to approve a $1,000 Scholarship annually to a Kansas
Student at UMKC School of Dentistry. The Kansas Section is considering an increase to the amount of scholarship funds available, which will be discussed at its next
business meeting in June 2012. Dr. Trotter appointed
an ad hoc committee, chaired by Dr. Steven Hechler, to
explore project options for the new Kansas Section.
The Kansas Section will have a joint luncheon with the
Missouri Section and the respective ICD and Pierre Fauchard Sections on April 13, 2012 in conjunction with the
Midwest Dental Conference in Kansas City, Missouri.
Missouri Section. The Missouri Section had its annual
meeting on January 20, 2012 in Columbia, Missouri. At
that meeting a resolution was passed to give six $1,000
Scholarships to UMKC dental students. These will be
presented at the UMKC School of Dentistry Awards
Banquet in September 2012. Dr. Dan Waite was recognized with a certificate and medallion in honor of his 50
years of ACD Fellowship. The next meeting of the Missouri Section is a joint luncheon with the Kansas Section
and the respective ICD and Pierre Fauchard Sections
on April 13, 2012 at the Midwest Dental Conference in
Kansas City, Missouri.

schools.
Upper Midwest Section. The Upper Midwest Section
will hold its annual business meeting and breakfast
April 28, 2012 in St. Paul in conjunction with the Star
of the North Meeting. The speaker will be Dr. Karen
Quick who heads the ethics program at the University
of Minnesota. The Upper Midwest Section is currently
discussing the relationship of the ACD to the university
program and how it can enhance that relationship. The
ethics program runs September through January and
is a one-on-one format. A student is taken through a
patient encounter using an actor, which is then followed
up with a discussion of that encounter. The White Coat
Ceremony at University of Minnesota School of Dentistry will be held in the fall of 2012.
Wisconsin Section. Student Research Day was held
February 15, 2012 at Marquette University School of
Dentistry. Amanda Olejniczak and Carolyn Gardiner
were the winners of the ACD Student Research Award.
They will receive their awards at the Wisconsin Section
Dinner on May 11, 2012 in Madison, Wisconsin. The
Wisconsin Section continues to support financially the
White Coat Ceremony at Marquette University School
of Dentistry.
In June 2012 Missouri Section members will attend the
UMKC School of Dentistry White Coat Ceremony and
help support it with a $1,000 contribution.

The 21st annual Regency 1
Leadership Meeting was
held on Saturday January
28, 2012. This gathering
began due to the vision of
Drs. Ed McNulty and Tom
Winkler both Past Presidents of the College. The
meeting had originally
been held at the CopleyPlaza Hotel where the
ACD was founded.
The attendees represent the six Sections of Regency 1.
This year Drs. Pat Blanton, Tom Winkler and Steve Ralls
were in attendance as well as
our indispensable Executive
Assistant, Karen Matthiesen.
Also the Student Professionalism Ethics Association was
represented by Steven Cagliostro from Tufts, who is serving
as Chapter President for the
Northeast.
Dr.StephenA.Ralls
A dinner was held
the Friday evening before with
spouses and guests.
It is a wonderful
evening of camaraderie and fun! The
venue allows us to
meet new Section
officers, national
officers and renew
old acquaintances.
The meeting followed on Saturday
morning. The
current ACD
President, Dr.
Pat Blanton,
provided a superb overview
of direction of
the College.
The format
is similar to
Dr.StevenRubin
the Regency
breakout session at our Annual Meeting but allows for

in-depth discussions.
The Regency Meeting typically lasts 2-2
½ hours. The Regent
provided an update
of the College. Each
Section then provided
a current report of its
activities as well as
the challenges that they face. This
provided an excellent opportunity
to share ideas and potential solutions that can then be taken back to
their respective Sections.
My special thanks to the New
England Section and in particular,
Dr Janice Conrad, for the incredible
support for this meeting over the
last 21 years.

Recent Activities
ASDE Meets at ADEA
The annual ASDE Business and
Spring Board Meetings were held at
the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) meetings in Orlando, Florida, March 17-21. Course
planning for upcoming courses and

a discussion about a planned survey
of members needs were the main
topics of the meetings. In addition to the normal business meeting activities and reports, the Society initiated
a “journal club” component where this year participants
discussed a recent article by Stanton Cobb entitled
“Teaching Ethics and Change” (Texas Dental Journal,
August 2011). Two Workshops were also presented by
ASDE members at the ADEA meetings:
Engaging Students in Professional
Identity Formation
This session described the experiences of educators who
have used the Professional Identity Essay to measure
levels of identity formation and to engage students in
self-assessment and reflection. The workshop described
strategies for promoting professional identity formation during professional education and for remediating
professionals who have violated professional standards.
The workshop was presented by Muriel Bebeau, Marilyn Lantz, and Kathy Faber-Langendoen.

are now incorporated into discipline accreditation standards for implementation within the next two years. The
second ASDE-sponsored program focused on a description of teaching, learning and curricular approaches
currently in use in predoctoral dental, dental hygiene
and advanced dental education programs to assure
student competency in ethics and professionalism. Participants in the session gained an understanding of the
variations of these new standards among the disciplines
and were presented with strategies to help achieve
compliance. Participants were also invited to share their

Upcoming Events and Presentations
ASDE Summer Board and Planning Meeting
Members of the ASDE Board and Planning Committee
will meet at The Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth, Michigan,
August 10-12, 2012. As has been our practice over the
past four years, we will present a continuing education
course as the first activity of the meeting. This year the
course is titled: “Ethics Around the Table: A Model for
Discussions” and has been organized by our host, and
Section member, Pamela Zarkowski, Esq. The remainder
of the weekend will continue with our annual planning
and revisiting of our directions and priorities. The ASDE
summer planning meeting is a tradition that was initiated by our late colleague Dr. Thomas Hasegawa, Jr. and
has been held each year since 2005.
New Seven-hour Ethics Course at
ACD Annual Meeting and Convocation
Honorary ACD Fellows and ASDE Members Bruce
Peltier and Pamela Zarkowski will present a new 7-hour
ethics course on Wednesday, October 17 in San Francisco. This course will build on the two previous courses
that have been offered at annual sessions (“Introduction
Ethics Matters
to Dental Ethics” and “Dental Ethics Facilitator Training”) and is titled “Analyzing and Responding to Ethical
Dilemmas: Addressing the Challenge and Managing the
Conversation.”The main objective of the course will be to
understand the concepts of professional ethics and their
role in addressing ethical issues that present conflict.
The morning session led by Pam Zarkowski will focus on
ethical principles and values, sensitivity and the decision
process. The afternoon component of the course will be
led by Dr. Bruce Peltier and will focus on principles of
communication and confrontation in dealing with and
managing conflict. The course will be organized around
real cases and will include significant participant discussion and role-play activities to practice the skills for resolving issues that result in ethical dilemma. This course
will be open to all and separate from the LeaderSkills
workshops. Registration and a nominal fee of $185 will be
required for attendance. Full details about this course can
be found in the Annual Meeting Brochure included in
this issue of the ACD News.
Recent Member Activities
ASDE Executive Director Anika Ball and colleagues at
the Loma Linda University (LLU) Center for Christian
Bioethics recently hosted Dr. Gabriel Bosslet, a noted
authority on the ethics of social media in medicine. Dr.
Bosslet, a faculty member at the Indiana University
School of Medicine and the Charles Warren Fairbanks
Center for Medical Ethics of Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, holds degrees in medicine and bioethics. His
presentation, “Professionalism in 140 Characters: Health
Care Providers and Online Social Networks,” was given
to a university-wide audience including students and
faculty of the LLU School of Dentistry discussed the
explosion of social media impact in medicine and the
professional and ethical implications of this new technology and social means of human interactions.
ASDE member and ACD Fellow Robert B. Stevenson
described the “Ethics in Dentistry” course that just concluded at the end of the winter term at The Ohio State
University College of Dentistry. This ethics elective will
be offered again during the spring quarter to third and
fourth-year dental students. Each of the sessions of this
course is 90 minutes long and begins with a short review
of basic ethical principles and guidelines followed by
breakout groups in which students discuss and report
on hypothetical dental situations involving conflict and
tension between two or more ethical ideals. An average
of two or three cases are discussed per session.
In addition to his monthly editorial column in The
American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics entitled “Ethics in Orthodontics,” ASDE member
Peter Greco just completed a Guest Presentation entitled
“Ethics in Orthodontics—Do the Right Thing, Even When
No One is Looking” for Practical Reviews in Orthodontics.
Practical Reviews is a continuing education series which
is available by subscription and is accessed mainly by
academic and practicing orthodontists. Dr. Greco’s hope
was that his presentation would sensitize orthodontists to
the topic of ethics, and, specifically ethical advertising.
ASDE member and ACD Fellow David Chambers reports multiple publications related to ethics:

working on a book on game theory and the creation of
moral communities.
ASDE Board member Toni Roucka, Marquette University School of Dentistry, reports that her first ethics
column for the journal General Dentistry came out in the
March issue. She will be doing a column every other
issue (3 times a year). Her first article was entitled “To
treat or not to treat... that is the question.”
ASDE member Joseph Graskemper reports that the Stonybrook University School of Dental Medicine was able
to start a Student Professionalism and Ethics Association (SPEA) chapter. Dr. Graskemper had been trying to
garner enough student support over the past two years
to start the SPEA chapter and they were finally able to
have their first organizational meeting. Dr. Graskemper
will be giving two presentations at the upcoming IDEALS Conference in Belgium in August.
ASDE member and ACD Fellow Margaret Wilson reports that the East Carolina University School of Dental
Medicine’s inaugural class has taken it upon themselves
to establish a SPEA chapter. Dr. Wilson will serve as the
faculty advisor and Dr. Wilson Jewell, a private practitioner from Wilmington, North Carolina and current President of the North Carolina Dental Society, will serve as
the community advisor. The young professionals at ECU
have begun their planning to help direct their interests
in ethics, professionalism, advocacy, and legislation.

those behaviors as demonstrated by “role models” and
“mentors.” All of us serve as role models and many as
mentors. It is my hope that these seemingly “tiny” lessons, which can have a “huge” impact on the public’s
confidence, might remind us role models and mentors
of the importance of our words and actions. The challenges that confront dentistry today are increasing in
frequency and complexity. Let us not allow these challenges, or all the rapid changes in dentistry, to deter us
from attending basic etiquette.
Our elegant dinner dance will feature the Kicks dance
band and troupe of Chinese Lion Dancers. We expect
a large attendance—make plans early. It’s going to be
a great event. Don’t miss it!
Since our inception over 90 years ago, the College has
championed the elevation of standards. Etiquette, in one
way of speaking, is about standards in dealing with people;
often in our case this means patients and other dentists.
Let it be the dentist who defines etiquette for the
healthcare profession-at-large and redefines the healthcare experiences for our patients. Further, let it be our
Fellows who play a major role and lead by example.

American College of Dentists Foundation
2011—A Year in Review
Background
The American College of
Dentists Foundation (ACDF)
is a nonprofit, charitable
501(c)(3) public foundation supporting educational and programmatic efforts of the American College of Dentists
and collaborating organizations. The Foundation
was established in 1972 to raise tax-deductible
support for educational, literary, scientific, and
charitable initiatives to advance oral health and the
dental profession. Most of the funds of the Foundation are provided by annual donations from Fellows,
their family and colleagues, and other friends of
the College. Other sources of support are obtained
from private organizations interested in oral health
and dentistry. (A list of donors to the Foundation
for 2011 is published in this issue. Donors to the
ACDF Endowment Fund and Gies Fellows and Gies
Benefactors will be published in the August issue of
ACD News.)
Foundation Activities
The Foundation provides support for a variety of
initiatives, many implemented by its partner, the
American College of Dentists. Activities over the
last twelve months include:
Professional Ethics Initiative—supported meetings of the Professional Ethics Initiative steering
committee, beginning with the initial meeting July
16-17, 2007 through more recent meetings. PEI, as
it is called, is a professional collaboration of dental organizations to improve the ethical climate of
dentistry. Besides the College, the steering committee currently includes representatives from the
American Dental Association, the American Dental
Education Association, and the American Society
for Dental Ethics Section. A brochure has been
published describing PEI and it can be downloaded
from the ACD Web site, www.acd.org. The latest developments from PEI include the PEAD and IDEA®
programs described below.
Practice Ethics Assessment and Development
(PEAD)—supports this series of online activities (part of PEI) whereby a dentist can self assess
the ethical climate of his or her practice. PEAD is
described elsewhere in this issue. The beta version
of PEAD is now online and can be tried at www.
dentalethics.org/pead/index-pead.htm. If desired,
PEAD can be taken for 10 hours of C.E. credit.
18 April2012
Interactive Dental Ethics Application (IDEA®)—
provides support for this comprehensive, interactive
resource (PDF) that functions much like an electronic
textbook. IDEA® includes ethics information, ethical
dilemma cases, articles, self-assessment activities,
and more. It is designed for both schools and individuals. The beta version is now available for download
at our Web site, www.dentalethics.org/idea.htm.
Dental History, Multimedia Dental History
Resource—supported the development of Dental
History, our multimedia dental history resource. The
resource has been updated and can be downloaded
from www.dentalhistory.org.

Volunteers in Action
Unique Uganda
Exotic and intriguing Africa was the destination. I had
heard about Uganda, though I wasn’t certain where it
was. I had even had my excitement perked when, as a
dental student 40 some years ago, we had been assigned
to Nigeria, then Ethiopia, then Kenya, never to get there.
Rather, I was diverted to Bella Vista Hospital’s mission
dental clinic, when, even with Canadian Boards, a work
permit (Kenya dental license) could not be arranged
without a year of private practice. Being asked by Dr.
Koren Borland, (Vice Regent, USA Section, Academy of
Dentistry International) a few months ago, I didn’t have
to think twice about this.
After much preparation (visas, donations from dental
companies, instruments, materials, equipment, etc.), a
group of six (about half the team) departed Los Angeles on Thursday, November 17th, destination Entebbe
International Airport, outside the capital of Uganda,
Kampala.
The mission trip was sponsored by NEEPUganda (www.
neepuganda.org) with the goal of correcting the oral
disease of students at a Christian school way out in the
country.
Uganda is a smaller country in East Africa with 91,000
square miles and 32 million people. It is on the equator and bordered by Sudan to the north, Kenya to the
east, Rwanda and Tanzania to the south, and Democratic
Republic of Congo to the west. The monetary unit is the
Ugandan Shilling (USh) which yields 2,500 per dollar
(USD). A common wage is $50,000 USh/month ($20 USD).
Electricity has more demand than supply, so the power is
rotated around the country causing unannounced, very
inconvenient blackouts from time to time, several per
week. In some areas it is off more than on, so cold showers are the norm. I recall the temporary headache I got
as I gingerly stuck my head under the cold shower water
in my attempt to shampoo my hair. It surely saves water,
though! Taxis are riding behind a motor scooter driver,
and cost $1,000 USh (about 40 cents USD) to go from
place to place shorter distances. The time zone is GMT
+3, or 11 hours ahead of California.
English is the official language, though there are 33
indigenous local languages impossible to understand.
Luganda is the most popular and to the untrained ear,
sounds like chatter. Strange letter combinations exist,
such as Mz, Ny, Mw, etc. The former British rule left its
mark in word usage, such as: trash = rubbish, yield =

give way, and turning off lights = extinguish lights, etc. HIV
infection has reduced,
but still high at 6%,
except for the Bodaboda (motorbike taxi)
drivers, at 9%. During
November there are
a couple of weeks of
“grasshopper season,” when they are caught for roasting
and eating. At night, bright flood lights can be seen with
the attracted swarms being funneled into collection with
corrugated tin roof sheets. Before you ask, yes, I did try
them, but only a few times! The climate is fairly constantly tropical, with latitudes from 4dN to 1dS: A small
monument designates when the equator is crossed.
Green is an understatement for the terrain of Uganda,
with verdant, fertile land. Almost 25% of the country’s
surface area is covered by water, including Lake Victoria (owned by Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania), Africa’s
largest lake and the world’s second largest fresh water
body. From
this lake as its
source, the Nile
River flows
northward
through central
and northern
Uganda, Sudan,
and Egypt, on
its long 4,130
mile (6,650
KM), 3-month journey to the Mediterranean Sea. Gandhi’s ashes were scattered in this river near its source at
Jinja. We were able to travel the river onto the lake, as
well as see a variety of elephants, hippopotami, leopard,
bison, and a myriad of bird species in our safari through
Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda’s second largest
of ten Parks, along with its several other wildlife reserves and forest reserves.
Eighty-five percent of Ugandans are Christian, divided
equally between Protestant and Roman Catholic, and
11% are Islamic, although that number is growing.
Kampala (the capital) near Lake Victoria, is the largest
city of two million, and Jinja near the Source of the Nile
River, is second. Eighty-five percent of the people live
rurally, where the majority are born in a village, grow up
in a village, work in that village, and die in the village,
never knowing much else of Uganda nor the world.
No report on Uganda would be complete without
mention of Amin. Uganda gained independence from
Great Britain in 1962 and Milton Obote became the first
President of Uganda, for nine years until 1971. Idi Amin,
poorly educated and barely literate, took power while
Obote was away in Singapore. By 1974 Amin was fully
engaged in his reign of terror. During the eight years
he was in power, 300,000 Ugandans were killed, many of
them tortured to death in horrible ways. He was driven
into exile in 1979, and died from multiple organ failure
in a Saudi Arabian hospital in 2003.
As it turned out for Uganda, 30 years after Amin was
booted into exile, and over two decades of President
Museveni, the country bears few obvious scars of what
came before. Ugandan optimism says the dark days are
in the past, as it embarked on one of the most staggering economic and political transformations of our time,
to become, in the words of a recent Oxfan report, “an
inspirational economic success story, and a symbol of a
more vibrant, successful Africa.” This is the resilience
of the East African people in Uganda. Today, Uganda
enjoys one of the healthiest reputations of any African
country when it comes to crime directed at tourists.
In preparing for this adventure, friends and relatives
asked me if I was hesitant or afraid, if I was sure I really
wanted to go to Uganda. I confirmed I was steadfast
in going to help, I was not hesitant nor afraid, and as it
turned out, people are more friendly than expected. No
violence nor even hint of danger was evident, just lots of
smiles for us on Ugandan faces.
During our time in Uganda, that is what we observed—
friendly, smiling people who enjoyed conversing and
wanted a picture taken. Our assignment was to work on
nearly 400 students, primary and secondary, at Nyamabuga village (translation = place of springs of healing
water), operated by Sister Gertrude Kabatalemwa. We
were to screen everyone, treat first those with infection
or pain, complete the restorative challenge, then educate

all in oral hygiene in
order to eliminate
gingivitis and provide for oral health.
With the oral and
systemic connection
so obvious nowadays, this would
give them improved
general health. As it
turned out, mission
was accomplished in
a week. Our teacher
in the group, Linda
McQuarrie, was superb at instructing and entertaining as she demonstrated
disclosing solution, brushing technique, and distributed
brushes to everyone. In my opinion and from a public
health standpoint, this likely was the most important part
of our impact there. We perhaps even motivated some to
get out of the cycle of village living in poverty, to pursue
education and strive to be more and break the cycle.
On the last day, before we packed up to leave, the entire
school thanked us with a farewell celebration. Music,
costumes, dance, poetry, were all directed at gratitude
for our visit and our help. My takeaway from the Uganga experience is what we were told upon arrival, as well
as every day we were there, “You are most welcome.” I
just wish you could hear it with that beautiful accent,
which is the memory I take home.
In all my travels to various countries of the world, I have
noted something interesting to me. Whether in India,
China, Latin America, or atolls in Micronesia, all of us
are alike in many ways. I am impressed that all human
beings, whatever the culture, wish for the very same
things in life: to find meaning, to be loved and appreciated, to touch and be touched. Indeed, we are more
30 April2012
alike than most of
us realize, though
circumstances
for each can vary
widely.
My hat goes off to
the hard working
group of NEEPUganda and Dr. Koren Borland, who
organized and led
the dental team.
These are outerdirected people
who give and give,
and then give a
little more. Are
you outer directed, finding ways to help others, being
helpful in ways that bring joy and happiness to others?
Or are we inner directed only with concerns about our
own wants and comfort, an egocentrism of sorts? In the
words of my dental and public health classmate, David
C. Brodeur, “I have concluded that we are on this earth
to help each other.” Thanks, Dave, well stated. In the
words of one of my medical heroes, “I don’t know what
your destiny will be, but one thing I do know, the only
ones among you who will be happy are those who have
sought and found how to serve.” – Albert Schweitzer.
And in the words of Duane Hulse, “We make a living by
what we get, we make a life by what we give.” May we
be able to give more when the need appears.

Seven Hours of C.E. Credit
Plan on Attending in San Francisco!
The College is again
offering a 7-hour ethics
course entitled Analyzing and Responding
to Ethical Dilemmas:
Addressing the Challenge and Managing
the Conversation.” The
presenters will be Dr.
Bruce Peltier, Professor of Psychology and
Ethics at the Arthur A.
Dugoni School of DenDr.BrucePeltier
tistry at the University
of Pacific in San Francisco, and Professor Pamela Zarkowski, Academic

framework to assist in
appropriate resolution.
Ethical principles and
values will be reviewed
to provide a foundation
for analyzing cases. Participants will be guided
PamelaZarkowski,Esq.
in using ethical decision
making to address case
vignettes in which ethical dilemma is present. The
session will also focus on the challenge of actually
implementing actions that must follow from ethical
decisions, and will focus on practicing these skills.
