April2012•Volume41•Number1 ACDNEWS AmericanCollegeofDentists 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- INSIDE THIS ISSUE President’s Forum Board of Regents Meeting ACD-ICD Conference Snapshots Regency Spotlight Regency News Ethics Matters News of Fellows Section Spotlight Section News ACDF Foundation Report President’s Dinner Snapshots Volunteers in Action ACDPresident PatriciaBlanton ICDPresident W.MichaelKenney 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.

Wednesday morning will feaContinued on page 12 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 Continued on page 12 1 Anonymous admonitions of Hippocrates of learning the history of medicine.

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. ACD Announces Awardees Ethics and Professionalism Award Student Professionalism and Ethics Association William J.

An official form, available from the Executive Office, must be used by Sections to request matching funds. Sections may award more than the $500 matching total. This matching arrangement is encourages Sections to give our only national student award, thereby helping to strengthen the identity of the award.

Courses Online Dental Ethics (CODE) Twenty-nine online courses in dental ethics are now available through Courses Online Dental Ethics (CODE) at www.dentalethics.org. A total of 29½ hours of C.E. credit is available. There are no registration fees. The ACD is an ADA CERP recognized provider. More courses are planned. Over 24,000 courses have been taken. Interactive Dental Ethics Application (IDEA®) Prototype Ready A beta version of the Interactive Dental Ethics Application (IDEA®) can be downloaded after a simple registration process at www.dentalethics.org/idea.htm. IDEA® is an interactive PDF file that functions much like an electronic ethics textbook. Dynamic self-assessment activities are included. IDEA® should be very useful in academic settings. Try it out! 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 Dr. Ralls at the Executive Office for more information, 888-223-1920 or [email protected] ACDNews 5 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.

Kansas Section. The new Kansas Section had its inaugural meeting on June 25, 2011 in Overland Park in conjunction with the Kansas Dental Association Annual Meeting. The following officers were elected: Chair, Dr. Jim Trotter; Secretary-Treasurer, Dr. Chuck Squire; Continued on page 8 ACDNews 7 Regency Spotlight — Regency 5 Continued from page 7 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. learn dental ethics program at both of Nebraska’s dental 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.

Regency News Dr.ThomasF.WinklerIII 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 Dr.BarbaraKayWinklerand StevenCagliostro ExecutiveAssistant KarenMatthiesen 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.

Course planning for upcoming courses and LawrenceGaretto 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. Ethics and Professionalism—Approaches to Assuring Student Competency and Compliance with New CODA Standards Because the Commission on Dental Accreditation recently adopted language on the topic of ethics and professionalism for each discipline as a new discipline- American Society for Dental Ethics Mission Statement TheMissionoftheSectionistosupportprofessionalethicsindentistryasthefoundationoforal healthcare.ThemembersoftheSectionare dedicatedtotheongoingstudyofethical issues, ethicseducation,andthedevelopmentoftheprofessiontopromoteintegrityandethicalpracticein serviceofpatients,community,andsociety. 10 April2012 specific standard, these standards and intent statements 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 own curricular approaches as resources for others. This program was presented by Phyllis Beemsterboer, Kathi Shepherd, James Swift and Pamela Zarkowski. Ozar-Hasegawa Award Recipient Announced The ASDE Section was also pleased to announce at their ADEA meeting the winner of this year’s Ozar-Hasegawa Award as Ms. Athena deBrouwer, BMSc (Honors), DDS Candidate (2015) from Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Western Ontario, Canada. Ms. De Brouwer’s submission was entitled, “Ethics Case Analysis: Culturally diverse patients and professionalism in dentistry.” ASDE was also pleased to recognize her advisor, Dr. Barry Schwartz, for his continued mentorship. Her paper will be available shortly at www. societyfordentalethics.org under the Awards link. 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.

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.

This program is described in more detail elsewhere in this issue. 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. Patricia L. Blanton, DDS, PhD President 12 April2012 News of Fellows David A.

ACDNews 27 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 = 28 April2012 Volunteers in Action 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 Continued on page 30 ACDNews 29 Volunteers in Action Continued from page 29 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.
