There’s a new generation of dentists bringing a forward thinking and community service-minded approach to the changing world of dentistry. Taylor Koren, DDS, a graduate of Texas A&M and a young dentist practicing in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, is a proud part of this movement.
Dr. Koren, a member of the Dallas County Dental Society (DCDS), recently discussed his reasons for choosing to be an active member of the American Dental Association (ADA), DCDS and the affiliated state organization, the Texas Dental Society.
“The ADA is paramount in advocating for dental and oral health issues at the national level, and the TDA also does a great job representing dentists’ interests at the state level,” Dr. Koren said. “Through my membership at the ADA and the component societies (TDA, DCDS), as well as joining the American Dental Political Action Committee (ADPAC), I am able to partner with organizations which serve to protect, promote, and advance the dental profession.”
To better serve his patients and stay up to date on the latest changes in the dental field, Dr. Koren actively pursues numerous continuing opportunites through these organizations.
“Staying current with continuing education credits is crucial to remaining both up-to-date in clinical dentistry, as well as keeping ones license active,” he said.
The quality of the continuing education options offered by DCDS makes the annual process convenient while offering relevant and important for its members.
Dr. Koren also has a strong sense for the importance of community service.
“As a dentist and ADA member, I know that my membership in the ADA is helping to support many beneficial programs,” he said. “I’m looking forward to personally participating and giving back.”
DCDS appeals to dentists of many generations in many ways. For Dr. Koren, advocacy, educational opportunity and community service rank highly among those benefits.
