A Message from 2023-2024 CFDDA President

Dr. Rod MacIntyre


As my tenure as the President of the Central Florida District Dental Association draws to a close, I want to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. As I reflect on the past year, I am reminded of the immense dedication, passion, and camaraderie that define our association.

 First and foremost, I extend my heartfelt appreciation to every member of our distinguished association. Your commitment to excellence, professional integrity, and patient care continues to inspire me and uplift our entire dental community.

 I am ever grateful to the current and past members of the Executive Committee for their guidance, support, and relentless pursuit of our shared vision. Your visionary leadership and strategic insights have been instrumental in steering our association towards greater achievements and ensuring that we remain at the forefront of organized dentistry.

 To our member delegates, trustees, and executive director, I extend my sincerest gratitude for your service and commitment to advancing our mission. Your dedication, expertise, and advocacy have been the driving force behind our collective success in the 17th District and the ADA!

 One of the most rewarding aspects of my presidency has been the opportunity to embark on affiliate visits and reconnect with old friends and colleagues while forging new bonds within our vibrant dental community. Each affiliate visit has been a testament to the diversity, resilience, and spirit of our association. I am honored to be a part of such a dynamic and inclusive community.

 I would also like to take this opportunity to highlight the key insights and developments from the recent Florida Dental Association’s Capital Report. The report underscores the critical importance of advocacy, collaboration, and proactive engagement in shaping the future of our profession. Please take a look at our recent legislative accomplishments and be sure to thank our hardworking PAC, GAC, LCDs and lobby team for protecting our profession. As champions of dental health and wellness, we must remain vigilant and proactive in advocating for policies and initiatives that promote access to quality dental care for all.

Looking ahead, I remind you of the upcoming Central Florida District Association’s Annual Meeting, which will be held at the picturesque Hammock Beach Resort on May 3-4, 2024. This event promises to be a celebration of excellence, innovation, and collaboration. I encourage each and every one of you to mark your calendars and join us for what promises to be an unforgettable experience. I hope our members and their teams are registered and continue to fill our hotel room block.

 In closing, thank you again for the privilege and honor of serving as your President. Here’s to a bright and prosperous future filled with endless possibilities and unparalleled success!
