The Beacon Shines
I deeply appreciate the article, "Farewell, Friend," since the title alone says it all. I certainly consider the dental alumni relationship one of the high points of my life and will continue to cherish the friendships in the years ahead. We cannot let this solid base for relationships dwindle away and become a thing of the past. Best wishes and deep appreciation.

I read the article on Stan Bergen, "Farewell, Friend," with tears in my eyes. It was well balanced and very fitting. The Editorial page, President's Message, and information about our heroes such as Bill Cinotti, George Mardirossian, Norm Betts, and our dean, Bob Saporito, informs us and binds us together as a cohesive fraternity in dentistry. Bravo!
Arnold H. Rosenheck, D.M.D.
Congratulations, and keep up the fine work!

In all, more than 1,000 athletes visited the Special Smiles tent, and more than 800 dental examinations were performed over the two days. Although the temperatures were in the 90s and there was high humidity, the alumni volunteers never wavered from their mission of attempting to bring improved dental care and oral health education to athletes in need. Truly a remarkable effort by all involved!
It was truly an out-standing weekend that touched the hearts of all that attended. Again, I wish to extend a hearty thank you to all NJDS alumni volunteers, and I look forward to seeing everyone at next year's program.
Martin Giniger, D.M.D., Ph.D.
I agree with the editor's comment that the Dental Alumni Association "is in very capable hands," referring to Carolyn Dennis-Phillips.
Praise for Latex-Safe Pioneer
I salute Dr. Patterson for her courage in dealing with this life-threatening allergy, and I commend her for creating a latex-safe environment.
