I have been selected to be on the Massachusetts Dental Society Guest Board. The MDS created the Guest Board member program in 2006 to broaden the composition of the board. Naturally, I am very excited, since it provides me an opportunity to meet colleagues who are involved with organized dentistry on the national, state and local boards as well as discover how MDS works and what it is doing for the profession.

My selection news was covered in the Worcester Telegram.

The local media has covered my acceptance into the Massachusetts Dental Society Leadership Institute quite extensively. 

  • The local Hopkinton newspaper has an article titled, "Local Worcester Dentist Accepted into Training Program". It goes on to report that the two-year program provides Dr. Meena Yegneswaran the tools and training to become civic leaders on local, state or national levels. When the training is complete, participants take part in a year long ad hoc committee focused on issues affecting dentistry.  

I just heard that I was accepted to the Mass Dental Society 2012-2014 Leadership Institute. The MDS Leadership Institute is designed to empower participating dentists with the necessary tools and training to become effective leaders in organized dentistry in their community. Am really looking forward to the program!

The Massachusetts Dental Society (MDS) is happy to offer members the Leadership Institute Program as a means to cultivate future leaders and broaden our volunteer base with leaders who can propel the MDS into the future.

Participating dentists will acquire important leadership skills that will prepare them to:

  • Think outside of the box on programs and activities
  • Run effective meetings
  • Motivate and inspire others to participate
  • Understand and articulate to others the major legislative issues impacting the dental profession
