Straumann Implants hosted this spring’s ASDOH Advisory Board meeting at their Andover, MA Headquarters. The positive and engaging meeting focused on how the Board can continue to support Dean Trombly and the innovative work being done at ASDOH and the Dillenberg Center. The November meeting will be held in Phoenix.

Upon his return to Arizona, Dr. Jack supervised the completion of his “Man Mine,” a replica of a hundred year old copper mine entrance that dominated the Jerome mining era in the early 1900’s. It was constructed from used material from the original one hundred year-old Gold King Mine by Jerome neighbors. It will serve as Dr. Jack’s office and relaxation space.

Dr. Jack Dillenberg also participated in the Project Accessible Oral Health (PAOH) led global conference which was held in collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. Those who participated in the meeting explored innovative ways to enhance the wellness of people with disabilities.

Following the conference, Dr. Jack attended a memorial celebration of the life of Dr. D. Walter Cohen – former Penn Dean and world leader in promoting oral health globally. His leadership, generosity and humble commitment to supporting the Alpha Omega fraternity and the collaboration between Hebrew University and AlQuds dental schools will never be forgotten.

Finally, before departing Penn Dental Medicine, Dr. Jack attended a lunch meeting with a group of Penn dental students and faculty to discuss his experiences and thoughts on the emerging issues facing the dental profession and suggestions for the next generation of oral health providers. It was truly a wonderful and jam-packed visit to the City of Brotherly Love.
