A Record Crowd Commemorates New Officers
A capacity crowd attended the Installation of Officers and enjoyed a ceremony that was respectful, lighthearted and at times quite humorous. ADA Trustee Chad Gehani installed Ioanna Mentzelopoulu as secretary, Luis Fujimoto as treasurer, Richard Lewenson as vice president and James Jacobs as president-elect prior to installing Dr. Kenneth Cooperman as the Society’s newest president on January 19 at the Harvard Club. During the proceedings Jeffrey Senzer received recognition for his time and dedication serving for four years on the Greater New York Dental Meeting’s Organizing Committee.
Before handing over the reins to the incoming president, Dr. Khurana provided an overview of the many accomplishments that were achieved in the past year. He noted that perhaps the chief accomplishment from 2016 was extricating NYCDS from its existing lease and finding more suitable and fiscally responsible office space. In his acceptance speech, Dr. Cooperman stressed breaking down barriers of communication with young dentists, and even within our own organization, to help make NYCDS more efficient. 
Members and invited guests celebrated afterwards over drinks, passed hors d’oeuvres and buffet stations in the splendid setting of the Harvard Club.  In addition to Dr. Gehani, several other special guests attended the festivities.  The New York State Dental Association was represented by Speaker of the House Steven Gounardes, Executive Director Mark Feldman, Dental Foundation Trustee Mark Bauman, and NYSDA Trustee from Nassau County, Michael Shreck. Second District Dental Society was well-represented by President Gabriel Ariola, President Elect Sari Rosenswein, Vice President Alyson Buchalter and Executive Director Bernie Hackett. Nassau County President Fabiola Milord attended, as well as Greater New York Dental Meeting Executive Director Robert Edwab.  Representing the Chinese American Dental Association was President Ruohong Jiang, President-Elect Glenn Ngan and NYU Professor Yon Lai.
