ADEA president

Gerald N. Glickman, DDS, MS, MBA, JD, has been installed as the new president of the American Dental Education Association.

ORLANDO, Florida--Gerald N. Glickman, DDS, MS, MBA. JD, has been installed as the new president of the American Dental Education Association at the 2012 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition.

"Dr. Glickman's commitment to and advocacy of lifelong learning is genuine," said ADEA Immediate Past President Leo E. Rouse, DDS.

"He has led by example throughout his career in dental education, and I anticipate that the unique perspective he brings to the ADEA presidency will ensure that both the association and the academic dentistry community will continue to flourish under his leadership."

Dr. Glickman will focus his term as ADEA president on fostering lifelong learning.

"Over the years, I have come to realize that education is far from finite--it simply does not end after one course of study or after completing dental school," said Dr. Glickman.

"The knowledge explosion in dentistry is growing exponentially, thus making life-long learning essential. We as an association must have our fingers on the pulse of all aspects of dental education, the latest research and best evidence, and the political climate of health care in order for us to grapple effectively with the issues we will be facing."
