STRONGER TOGETHER

September 10th, 2020

You may have heard about a recent Virginia Board of Dentistry motion adopted in the Spring of 2020 regarding provisions suggested for limits on pediatric sedation age ranges as well as treatment settings. The VAPD, AAPD and VDA heard your concerns regarding this motion and worked together to advocate on behalf of members and children in Virginia. The VAPD submitted a letter to the Virginia Board of Dentistry this week that outlines our concerns. The VDA has submitted a similar response as well. We are committed to advocating for policies, guidelines and programs that promote optimal oral health and oral health care for children.

VAPD TO MOVE ITS ANNUAL BUSINESS MEETING ONLINE!

June 26th, 2020

The Virginia Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (VAPD) was scheduled to hold our 2020 continuing education program and business meeting in conjunction with the Virginia Dental Association’s (VDA), Virginia Meeting. The VDA recently announced that they are cancelling their 2020 conference in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
While we are all disappointed that we are unable to have this event as initially planned, the health and safety of our members is our number one priority. To that end, we have decided to also forgo our continuing education program for 2020 and hold our annual business meeting virtually. Doing this will allow us to save meeting funds for an even better event in 2021 when we partner with the VDA in Williamsburg!
