WELCOME TO THE NORTHEAST DISTRICT DENTAL ASSOCIATION
The Northeast District Dental Association (NEDDA) is one of six components of the Florida Dental Association (FDA). The FDA is a constituent of the American Dental Association (ADA). When you join NEDDA, you also join the ADA and the FDA.
NEDDA represents Florida’s licensed dentists in the northeastern counties of Bradford, Baker, Clay, Columbia, Dixie, Duval, Hamilton, Lafayette, Madison, Nassau, Putnam, St. Johns, Suwannee, Taylor and Union. Staying true to the FDA’s mission is our top priority and our vision closely reflects our commitment to helping members succeed. Our component is committed to the improvement of the health of the public, promoting the art and science of dentistry and representing the concerns of the members of the dental profession.
To all of our wonderful volunteers,
On behalf of the Florida Dental Association Foundation and the Florida Mission of Mercy (FLA-MOM) Committee, please accept our heartfelt thanks for your support of the FLA-MOM event that was held in Jacksonville this past weekend. Your drive, energy, time, commitment and professionalism allowed our event to be the most successful MOM held to date in the United States!
The difference that we made in so many lives was abundantly clear to all of us — whether helping patients while waiting in line or providing clinical services. This experience reminded each volunteer how the lives we lead are so blessed and fortunate. The gratitude we received from those who spent hours waiting in the hot sun in order to become pain-free was a humbling experience for us all.
The above infographic provides statistics from our event. Please feel free to share the information with pride at having been a part of it! These numbers are significantly higher than the largest MOM previously held in this country!
In addition to changing the lives and the smiles of so many deserving patients, almost all of the patients elected to be included in our Impact Study. The sample will provide statistically significant results to do so much more in the near future — not only to help support these events, but possibly to integrate community changes as well.
The 2017 FLA-MOM will be held in Pensacola during the weekend of March 25, 2017 — 11 short months from now! Our friends Drs. Kim Jernigan and Beau Biggs will be the Co-Chairs for the event. Volunteer sign-up for dental professionals will begin at the Florida Dental Convention in June; community volunteer sign-up will be announced at a later time. Feel free to reach out individually if you want to volunteer in the planning stages for the 2017 FLA-MOM as well!
We are humbled by the accomplishments of such a large group of volunteers who worked together so well, efficiently and with purpose — all with the desire to help our fellow Floridians. Please click here to view a large collection of images gathered by a number of photographers at the event to relive the moments we all shared. They will stay with us for a lifetime! Dr. Stevenson and I cannot thank you enough for the opportunity to chair this event, and we couldn’t have envisioned a better result!
Once again, THANK YOU!
Dr. Andy Brown and Dr. Rick Stevenson
