As we all try to stay safe and healthy while the pandemic continues to grow in the U.S., Dr. Jack continues to provide virtual webinars, videos and lectures for the dental industry. In his current role as Mayor elect of Jerome, AZ – he becomes Mayor on November 10th – he has the opportunity to participate in Yavapai County leadership meetings to learn and contribute.
Dr. Jack just completed a one hour webinar on “Public Health Is Essential for Oral and Overall Health – Especially Now,” in collaboration with colleagues for the upcoming Greater New York Dental Meeting that will be virtual this year. We all know that dental care is essential and safe so it needs to continue to be a priority for everyone in order to maintain overall good health.
With Covid -19 numbers increasing, please wear your mask in public, maintain social distance, wash your hands and avoid group events – especially indoors. The number of new cases will continue to increase into 2021.

The Alliance for Oral Health Across Borders held its annual meeting at the NYUCD. The meeting focused on developing the new organizational structure and vision. This global alliance plans to increase its presence in developing emerging leaders globally to create and manage innovative programs serving the underserved, such as individuals with special needs, throughout the world.
The week began with Dr. Jack Dillenberg presenting at the NYU Lutheran Faculty Development meeting. His focus was on the leadership skills required to compliment clinical skills as oral health becomes more integrated with primary health care.
He also discussed the importance of providing care to special needs patients including the elderly and those with medically complex conditions. NYU surprised Dr. Jack with an award recognizing his career of public health leadership.
