Full Text: Spring has come early this year, and what better way to celebrate the renewal and new growth of the season than by re-commiting to ADAA2'S goal to "go green" in the dental office? The Journal's first of three featured free continuing education courses, "Go Green: It's the Right Thing to Do," takes a look at how you can help make your dental office more enviromentally-friendly. This course was developed jointly by the the American Dental Association's Council on Dental Practice and ADAA (pg. 10).

Speaking of new beginnings, I'd like to welcome 2010-2011 ADAA Past President, Natalie Kaweckyj, LDARF, CDA, CDPMA, COA, COMSA, CPFDA, MADAA, BA, aboard as the newest member of the Journal's Editorial Board. Ms. Kaweckyj brings a considerable amount of knowledge and experience to the board. She will be taking over for Gary Jacobs, CDA, RDH, MPA. Thank you, Mr. Jacobs, for your work and contribution to this Journal. I wish you all the best in your next projects and hope that you can work with the Journal again in the future.

Just in time for Tax Day, Ms. Kaweckyj has an article on how to navigate the complexities of being tax compliant for ADAA state and local components (pg. 6). Please make sure your ADAA chapter is up to speed on compliancy with the current regulations.

It's never too soon to start planning for the ADAA Annual Session to be held in San Francisco this October. The Journal brings you a first look at all Annual Session has to offer, from ADAA events and governance to CE courses for the dental assistant, and all you need to know about registering for this fantastic event (pg. 30). Registration opens on April 11, 2012, at ADA.org/session. Don't wait--registration fees increase after September 21, 2012, so register as an attendee for Annual Session today!
