Dr. David Sarrett

I was invited to participate in a panel discussion entitled “Bridging Gaps Between Dental Standards Development and Industry which was organized by the ADA Standards Committee on Dental Products (SCDP) (http://www.ada.org/280.aspx) and the Dental Trade Alliance (DTA) (http://www.dentaltradealliance.org/). This event was part of the annual meeting of the ADA SCDP.  The SCDP is the national group which develops standards for dental products and participates in the International Standards Organization to publish manufacturing standards.  With me on the panel were Napoleon Monroe (DTA and formerly with Henry Schein), Scott Erickson (SCDP member representing the DTA and from 3M ESPE Dental Products), Mike DiBello (DTA and Henry Schein), Greg Zeller (ADA Division of Science), Shannon Mills (SCDP past Chairman and Delta Dental), and Ken Anusavice (SCDP past Chairman and University of Florida).  The session was moderated by Jeff Zawada (current SCDP Chairman from A-dec) and Sharon Stanford (SCDP Secretary from the ADA).  Standards development work is not well known but extremely important to insure we have the best products to use and to permit manufacturers to market their products globally.  Have you ever thought about why any USB plug will plug into any USB port?  People have to agree internationally on such things.  Not always easy.

Sorry if I missed having a photo.  If you have photos of other presenters please send them to me and I can add them to this post.
