A Message from Society President Troy Schulman


Rolling in 2024


As 2023 comes to a close, our Society has much to be thankful for and celebrate over this past year. In March, General Chair Roy McDonald produced a successful, in-person Hinman Dental Meeting. Spring brought a magical family Annual Meeting at Disney World hosted by Society immediate past President David Anderson. Throughout the rest of the year, our members continued to come together for top-tier continuing education and much needed fellowship.

We are on a roll and continuing to provide quality programming and events for our members in 2024. In November, Mr. Charles Loretto spoke on practice ownership and retirement. Charles is a wealth of knowledge and I believe everyone left with something that will benefit them professionally and personally. In case you missed his lecture, he will be back for our March Meeting. Hinman members will have one more opportunity to satisfy their membership requirement on January 18 as we roll into the Georgia Aquarium to hear Ms. Laci Phillips Newland. Your entire team is invited to hear one of the best dental practice coaches present “Level up, Roll on and Succeed! A Story of Challenges, Leadership and an United Team.” I would like to thank my Program Chair, Victor van Greuningen, who helped make all these meetings a success.


Let’s not forget Hospitality Chairs, Brett and Lyndsay Langston, and their committee who never fail to rollout the red carpet at each of our meetings.

One of the ways our Society gives back to dental education is at the University of Tennessee Hinman Student Research Symposium. The 28th annual symposium was held on November 10 – 12 in
Memphis, Tennessee. I would like to thank our President-elect, Slade Lail, for representing our Society this year. Our Society is dedicated to the future of the dental profession in sponsoring this
high-quality meeting each year. 

The reason we are able to achieve our mission of giving back is the success of the March Meeting. This year’s Chair Sedgie Newsom and his Program Chairs, Jonathan Dubin and Patrick French, are ready
to roll out another “Best Hinman Ever.” But as always, they need your help. Please make sure you are signed up for your required eight hours at this year’s Meeting. Registration for all attendees is
now open so spread the word to your colleagues far and wide.

After your volunteer work at the Meeting, don’t forget about your “Lagniappe” (a little something extra)! One free night at the beautiful beachside Sonesta resort on Hilton Head Island awaits you and
your family. Our Annual Meeting will be held on May 31 – June 2, 2024. Chair Matt Mazzawi is hard at work planning an unforgettable weekend for all of us. The resort will have just completed a full
renovation. You and your family will not want to miss this great Hinman tradition. The room reservation link is now open so call and reserve your room early. 


I would like to thank and celebrate the Hinman executive team for all their hard work and dedication to our Society. They roll up their sleeves every day and perform beyond expectations. Special thanks

to Jackie Sarvis, our Society Member Service Manager, who has worked very patiently with me this year organizing all our Society events. Thank you, Jackie!


I am truly humbled by the privilege to serve as your President and I wish you all a Happy Holiday season and a healthy, prosperous New Year.


- Troy
