Dear Members,


As we embark on a new year filled with opportunities and challenges, I am honored to address each of you as the 2024 President of the New York State Academy of General Dentistry.

First and foremost, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering commitment to excellence in dental care, your dedication to professional development, and your continued support of our academy. Your contributions are what make our community of general dentists truly exceptional.

In the coming months, we are excited to roll out a series of initiatives to advance our collective knowledge, foster collaboration, and enhance our members' overall experience. From original and cutting-edge education opportunities and the continuously improving GP Journal to events facilitating meaningful connections, we are committed to providing you with the resources you need to thrive in your practice.

I encourage each of you to actively participate in our upcoming events, engage with your fellow members, and take advantage of our academy's wealth of knowledge.

Your involvement enriches your professional journey and contributes to our dental community's strength and vitality.

Additionally, I want to highlight the importance of advocacy for our profession and protecting the general dentistry practice for which NYSAGD is always a leader.

But also, as general dentists, we play a crucial role in promoting oral health and well-being in our patients.

Let us unite in our efforts to raise awareness about the value of the integral role that general dentistry plays in overall health.

As we navigate the ever-evolving landscape of dentistry, your feedback and insights are invaluable. I encourage you to contact us with any suggestions, ideas, or concerns you may have. Together, we can shape the future of our academy and continue to elevate general dentistry standards in New York.


Thank you for your continued support. I look forward to a year filled with growth, collaboration, and success for every NYS Academy of General Dentistry member.


Wishing you a prosperous and fulfilling year ahead.

For the good of the Academy,



Analia Veitz- Keenan DDS, FAGD
